Maria Sabina

(1894 - 1985)

A Mazatec shaman who lived in the Oaxacan mountain village of Huautla de Jiménez, Maria Sabina was the first known shaman to allow Westerners to participate in the Mazatec psilocybin ritual. She received many prominent visitors—including Aldous Huxley and John Lennon—at her village in Oaxaca. Some have said that Walt Disney visited Sabina on six separate occasions to eat psilocybin mushrooms with her.
