The Apurinã tribe, scattered on the banks of the Purus River, has a rich cosmological and ritual universe. Their history has been heavily influenced by the violence of two rubber periods in the Amazon region. Apurina to this day, they fight for their rights. Some of their territories have not yet been officially recognized and are constantly being attacked by miners.
Apurinã are known for their greens Rapé, so unique and different from other tribes in the region. They also call him Rapé Awiry, which is also the name of the plant from which it is made. Awiry is considered a species of wild tabaku, it grows on the banks of rivers and can be harvested only at certain times of the year, because when the river rises in the rainy season, the area where Awiry grows is flooded. Awiri grows wild, but today some communities also cultivate it.
Awiri is not fermented or heated, its leaves are only allowed to dry, therefore Rapé Apurina retains its lush green color. After drying, it has been ground so that we can consider it raw and alive Rapé. Awiry is not mixed with ash, it is only ground planting material.
The action of this Rapé could be described as a gentle euphoric calm that washes you and at the same time gently intensifies the senses. It brings a feeling of raw liveliness. Its power opens gradually, it is gentle and flooding, it brings complete silence and anchoring in oneself and in the present. Apurina it is suitable for meditation. It is used for a deep connection with sacred plants, the spirits of the forest and with Pacha Mama (Mother Earth). It helps to open the senses, gives clarity and can intensify your dreams.
Apurina isn't Rapé designed for cleansing, like most other species Rapé. Apurina is suitable for meditation and deep introspection, when you rather determine the strength and intensity of this Rapé, according to your ability to open.
