“n 2020, after more than a decade of drought, a cluster of small farmer families from the high plateaus of San Luis Potosí, Mexico send a letter petitioning the Wixarika Indigenous people to provide them with a rain chanter for their dry cornfields.

After the first cycle of ceremonies, the deities with whom the Wixárika chanter
communicates, determine that the state of the world is far worse than what we had thought. A comprehensive cultural and political effort must be carried out in all five sacred places in conjunction with the small farmer, Wixarika communities and allies. These land-based beliefs move mountains and mobilize individuals, families, and organizations.
