"Today many Navajo's practice peyotism on the reservation. They use it as a true religion. They worship mother earth, peyote and the almight God througout the whole night, through the holy fireplace, the mother medicine and the holy moon. They say when the holy moon appears real narrow, sideways, a new human being is born and this is the way of the holy moon shaped earth for worshipping God.
This is a picture representing the way it is when you have apeyote dream. You get good effects from peyote ! Justin Tso"
