Description

more about YAWANAWA tribe:

In the Pano language, ‘yawa’ means ‘white-mouthed speaking peccary’ (an animal similar to a boar) and ‘nava’ means ‘man’. This tribe recognizes the peccary as its symbol because, like them, they are a family that has lived close together since time immemorial. Currently, they have about 1,200 people and inhabit the area along the Gregorio River. They share this territory with the Katungina tribe. The members of the two tribes are largely mixed – most of the members of one tribe have a relationship with those of the other tribe.

The Yawanawa believe in the power of Rapé, called Rume in their language. Legend has it that Rapé came to them after the death of the first shaman – after the funeral, unusual plants grew on his grave, and the wisest man in the village decided that they should be dried and pulverized. Later, they were consumed in various ways and found to have healing properties. This is how Rapé medicine was born.
