The Puyanawa Tribe
The Poianauas (Puyanawa) are an indigenous group that lives in the far west of the Brazilian state of Acre, more precisely in the Indigenous Land Poyanawa, located in the municipality of Mancio Lima. The Puyanawa live in two villages: Barão do Rio Branco and Ipiranga.
A permanent road is their main access route, which connects the village Ipiranga to the downtown area over a distance of 28 km. Another access option is via the Moa River.
The first record of contact between the group and non-indigenous dates back to 1904.
The Puyanawa spoke a language of the Pano language family. The language is called Ûdikuî by the speakers, which means “true language”.
Since the reconquest of the territory, homologated in 2001, there has been a revitalization of traditions, language, and population growth among the Puyanawa indigenous people.
What is Rapé ?
Rapé, a legal sacred shamanic medicine from Amazon, which is pronounced ‘ha-peh’ in English, is a fine powder prepared from a blend of herbs, other plants, seeds, and tree bark. These are very rare, sacred, powerful, and profoundly healing and cleansing miracle medicines, and are made in a very sacred and labor intensive process.
Rapé has healing and ritualistic effects when blown.
Traditional Rapé has been used for thousands of years by South American indigenous groups. Unlike other substances that cause hallucinogenic effects that alter the senses and awareness, is an entheogen, a term used to describe substances with symbolic and cultural aspects.
As an entheogen, Rapé produces feelings of lightness, energization, and spiritual cleansing when used. It can trigger reactions like extreme sweating, vomiting, and weakness exactly because it performs this deep cleansing.
The substance is regarded as a sacred medicine, and when used properly and under guidance, it is not addictive, and can help the healing of diseases such as sinusitis, as well as spiritual healing.
Indigenous peoples believes that the preparation of Rapé must have a purpose and only allow shamans and shaman apprentices to make the hapé because they are trusted members of the tribe.
The effects of the medicine might be good, such as healing and wellbeing, or negative, such as illness and even spiritual harm, depending on the intention of the people who apply and receive the Rapé.
In other words, the Rapé ritual is an act of bravery and trust between the Rapé-applier and everyone else involved.

How is Rapé used?
There is a hierarchy in indigenous tribes, and only the Shaman (in Tupi language: Pajé), the Shaman’s apprentice, or someone trusted by the tribe can prepare Rapé because there is a technique that must be followed.
After being prepared, the Rapé becomes a powder that is blown, first through one nostril and then the other, it is always recommended to blow out one nostril at a time, so that the user creates a connection that allows the substances can act.
When Rapé is blown, the substance found in the bark of trees, herbs and other plants is inhaled, causing it to rise automatically into the airways. Hapé clears the airways as it passes through them, and once in the brain, causes a sense of well-being as well as an expansion of consciousness and senses.
When Rapé is blown, a smoke is formed, that spreads throughout the environment.
It is critical for Rapé to fulfill its medicinal and ritualistic functions that the user’s thoughts are in sync.
In some rituals the Tepi, is passed between people, and for this reason it is worth pointing out that everyone is subject to the same effects, since when the Tepi is passed, energies are also exchanged.
