The Kaxinawá People
Learn about the indigenous people behind Kaxinawá Masculine Rapé. The Kaxinawá people, also known as Huni Kuin, are native to the Brazilian and Peruvian Amazon. Their villages are located along the Purus and Curanja rivers in eastern Peru and the upper Juruá and Javari river valleys in western Brazil in the State of Acre. Their language belongs to the Pano linguistic family, which they call hatxa-Kuin (true language). The population is approximately 4,000 people, and they account for 42% of the indigenous population in the state of Acre. Although this Amerindian group has some contact with whites, they still avoid it and prefer to live isolated in the forest living according to its traditional ways.
What is Rapé?
Discover the origins and uses of Rapé, a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly 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.
Rapé has been used for centuries by indigenous tribes in South America for its medicinal properties. The plants and herbs used in Rapé blends contain a variety of active compounds that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antimicrobial effects. Some studies have also suggested that Rapé may have psychoactive properties, which can help to improve mood, reduce anxiety, and enhance spiritual experiences.
