Notes

Peyote was the basis of the "peyote cult," derived from the work of Handsome Lake which spread rapidly through the western part of the United States in the 19th century. It eventually finds its way to the Winnebago of Nebraska [1]

John Rave, a Winnebago, introduced peyote to the Winnebago after consuming some in Oklahoma. He experimented with it and found that it helped cure his alcoholism.[2] "Nevertheless, these peyote people preached good things and gradually lost all desire for intoxicating drinks..."[3]

John Rave proselytized peyote consumption, based largely on its curative powers, helping with venereal diseases and consumption (alcoholism). [4]
