We would love to support the yearly pilgrimage of the Wirrarika people or better know by the outsiders as Huicholes to the sacred desert of Wirikuta. Wirikuta has been in threath to be irreversebly damaged by Canadian Mining Companies , but the resistance of the Wirrarikas among the efforts from the Mexicans and the international community has been protecting this place from been polluted and destroyed. We must keep on protecting nature and our indigen people from dissapearing behind the interest of big corporations and corrupted goverments. Lets preserve tradition, the knowledge of love and balance that the Huicholes have.
