The Yawanawa are a small indigenous group that inhabits the southwestern Brazilian state of Acre. They are related to the Takukina people and belong to the Pano linguistic family. Their main activity is hunting and fishing, but they also have plots where they do slash-and-burn agriculture with manioc, bananas, peach palm, sweet potatoes, and papaya. The Yawanawa are known for their art expressions, including the diversity of body paint designs, pottery, and basketry.
What is Rapé?
Rapé is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly tribal people from Brazil and Peru. It is pronounced ‘ha-pey’ in Portuguese. The snuff 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’. 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.
