This series of short talks will offer a nuanced picture of the interconnected issues surrounding psychedelic ritual/therapy, art/music, and land/equity, in the context of both research universities and indigenous cultural practices. The series of talks will begin by highlighting the relationship between the Huichol (Wixáritari) peyote ritual, their art and music traditions, and the fight for land and equity to sustain their culture. The second portion of the session will feature talks focusing on dimensions of art/music and land/equity within the context of psychedelic clinical trials. Each speaker will offer different and vital perspectives gained from a variety of fields of expertise--in ethnobotany, pharmacology, music theory, history of science, human development and family studies, Latin American studies, environmental studies, and rhetorical science and technology studies. The lightning talks will then culminate in a formal presentation/performance given by a Huichol artist.
