Recent genetic research regarding Mexico's Huichol Indians has revealed DNA evidence that suggests that the tribe's historical origins lie in Mexico's northeastern desert near San Luis Potosí, thereby affirming Huichol migration theories previously asserted by the majority of ethnoscientific and linguistic studies. This article illustrates the value of adhering to the scholarly method of reliance upon weighted evidence in order to achieve congruent results between multiple types of research data.
