Laughter is an important part of Huichol life and tradition. They say it is a key element to healing, living, and being a whole person. No situation is beyond the bounds of humor for the Huichol -- NOTHING! They love to laugh and tease each other and joke around. They see laughter as good medicine, for the soul, and for the body. It makes us feel better. It shifts us into a positive outlook on life.
But Huichols are not all standup comics or joke tellers. Their humor often involves helping you take yourself and your problems less seriously, whether you're ready or not.
