The Huichol call their God's eyes Sikuli, which means "the power to see and understand things unknown." When a child is born, the central eye is woven by the father, then one eye is added for every year of the child's life until the child reaches the age of five. Original Huichol Crosses are extremely rare to come by. We followed the ancient tradition and made our own. I have fond memories of this simple craft, growing up. It was great to share this with the students and do our own embellishments with beads and feathers.
