One of our goals is to ensure that every huichol family has a roof to sleep under; a place to call home. The Roof Fund helps to build and fix the traditional Huichol huts, which have been the people’s accustomed form of shelter for thousands of years. Simple thatched grass roofs, wooden beams and clay is all that is required to create shelter from the torrential downpours and intense sun, which bless the rugged Huichol landscape.
The Huichol Foundation is working to raise funds for the new Huichol Cultural school. This school will offer educational programs to teach the youth within the tribe about their ancient heritage. Elders from a number of villages will teach numerous aspects of the culture, from traditional ceremonies and artistry to mythology and huichol language studies.
