Yaminawa Indigenous People
The Yaminawa people, also known as the “people of the ax,” are indigenous to the state of Acre in the Brazilian Amazon. They have several ethnonyms like Bashonawá (opossum people) and are closely related to the Yawanawa people. Recently, they have been developing new models of sustainability to protect the rainforest and engage with the outside world on their own terms, in order to protect their cultural and spiritual identity.
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 it is usually 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.
Studies have shown that the plants used in Rapé blends contain a variety of active compounds, including alkaloids, flavonoids, and terpenes. These compounds have been shown to have a variety of effects on the body, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antimicrobial properties. Additionally, the use of Rapé has been associated with increased focus, mental clarity, and a sense of grounding.
