༄ Huichol Indians ༄ [youtu.be]

Son of a Huichol Indian Shaman
I took this photo while on a peyote pilgrimage in Mexico,and having just met his father (a huichol shaman) the family didn't know me. This young boy had never met anyone by the likes of me before (gringo) and had fear in his eyes. His father told him not to worry. This tribe of Indians live very remote and yes,it can be a hard life. He was all smiles after,but wasn't sure about my camera…now that I think about it,neither am I ! :))
