“Huicholes: The Last Peyote Guardians” tells the story of the Wixárika (Huichol) people and their struggle against the Mexican government and Canadian mining companies to protect Wirikuta, their most sacred territory where the peyote grows. Following the screening will be a presentation by two of the film’s protagonists, traditional Wixárika shamans José Luis Ramírez and Enrique Ramírez from the Sierra Madre, and director Hernán Vilchez.
