Help Us Bring Healthcare to the Huicholes

10382511_10152912218940281_3338871334988398035_oThe Huichol indigenous people of Mexico are famous for their art, like this intricately beaded jaguar head.  The Huicholes live deep inside the mountains of West Central Mexico, in the States of Jalisco, Zacatecas and Nayarit.  In fact, their villages are at least an 18 hour drive from Guadalajara and the road is only passable outside of the rainy season.  As a result, healthcare is difficult to access. Laura, Tia’s founder has been approached by Huichol leaders because they would like to have Tia Promotores Project in their villages implemented in fall of 2015.

During our trip in August, Laura met with Huicholes who had come to Guadalajara to sell their lovely art.  Among them were children, some with permanent learning and health disabilities due to inadequate prenatal care and lack of nutrition during infancy.  If you would like to help Tia bring our program to the Huichol people, please click on the Donate Now button on the right side of our home page.
