Grupo Tatewarí

This is a time when the earth and our people are facing unprecedented challenges. Many have lost their way, feeling confused or disconnected from each other and the living world we reside in.

We offer perspectives and work as healers from the Wixárika (Huichol) tradition, through our understanding and experience in modern culture to bring effective healing and remind people of our place in the circle of life.

We work hard, devote our lives to service, keep our sacred vows, and learn from Tatewarí (Grandfather Fire) the original teacher of the Wixárika shamans, in order to bring healing and wisdom back to our people.

As a traditional medicine path group, we journey to the ancestral lands in the Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico. We make pilgrimages and prayers and bring offerings to the sacred places. We are recognized by the Wixárika elders, the Kawiterutsirri, as mara’akate (traditional healers and counselors, or shamans) who can guide and heal modern people through this timeless tradition.

We give back to the Wixárika (Huichol) community in sacred reciprocity for their devotion in holding the wisdom of the tradition, these lifeways and the healing. We started the Huichol Art Project which helps support many families both economically and in maintaining their traditional way of life through the purchasing of their art and crafts for sale in the United States. Annual grants are made by us through the San Andres Fund to directly support annual pilgrimages, ceremonies, and ceremonial centers in the local villages.

You are invited to explore this website and consider our writings and offerings. This traditional approach and medicine is grounded in an age-old view of nature and life, and yet relevant and effective for people of today.
