Yawanawa People

The Yawanawa are a small indigenous group that inhabits the southwestern Brazilian state of Acre. Yawanawa is freely translated into ‘The people of the white-lipped pecary’. They are related to the Takukina people and belong to the Pano linguistic family. By 1997 total population was around 450 people. Their main activity is hunting and fishing. Although they also have plots where they do slash-and-burn agriculture with manioc, bananas, peach palm, sweet potatoes, and papaya. Some of their art expressions include the diversity of body paint designs, pottery, and basketry.

What is Rapé?

Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’ in Portuguese, is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America. Predominantly tribal people from Brazil and Peru. Rapé blends contain a ground mixture of plants, tree bark, seeds, and ash. The fine powder is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi or ‘Kuripe’. The Tepi applicator is a long blow pipe that connects the nostril of the receiver to the mouth of the person that administers the snuff. The Kuripe is for self-application. The V-shaped applicator connects the nostril to the mouth allowing the snuff to be self-blown into the nose.

Each tribe has its own rapé formula and usually, it is women who gather the ingredients. The selection, mixture, and grinding process are regarded as a ritual only to be performed by a reputable healer. The snuff is typically made in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasion.

The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to nature and a sense of grounding. It clears mental fog and confusion eliminating negative thought patterns. These powerful snuffs bring about physical and spiritual wellness.
