Blue deer: Kauyumari


A long time ago in the Sierra Huichol food was scarce and people were dying. This worried the wise men of the community who decided to send a group of young people to seek food for the people.

These young people went to the adventure, walked for days until one night they saw a big deer with colored horns which called their attention , the deer ran...

They followed up to the road that would take them to Wirikuta (sacred path of the Huichol). A member of the group shot an arrow at the animal which disappeared leaving the floor with peyote, one magical herb which could end all ills.
