Nierikas of Chaquira
Nierika It is a Wixárika voice that can be translated into Spanish as the "gift of vision", specifically alluding to the vision of the ancestral gods. This is achieved through ceremonies and offerings aimed at knowing the hidden or authentic state of things.
Marakame collaborates with Wixaritari artists for the production and distribution of these vision instruments, respecting and conserving the traditional processes with which they have been historically made: calibrated glass beads, campeche wax and a wooden support.
Each of these circles or tondos it encodes ceremonial and spiritual narratives, linked with patterns of figures and color that characterize the Wixárika worldview: animals, vegetation, the stars and the gods that speak to us the truths of the cosmos.
