A Kuripe is a traditional self-administration pipe used by indigenous tribes in the Amazon rainforest, particularly in regions where Rapé (a sacred medicinal snuff) is prevalent. It is a small V-shaped pipe that allows individuals to administer Rapé to themselves through the nostrils.

The Kuripe consists of two connected tubes, one shorter and wider for inhaling the Rapé, and the other longer and narrower for blowing the snuff into the nostrils. This design enables individuals to easily self-administer Rapé without assistance.

 

In indigenous cultures, the Kuripe is considered a sacred tool for spiritual practices, healing rituals, and ceremonial use. It is often crafted with care and adorned with symbolic decorations that reflect the cultural heritage and spiritual beliefs of the community.

 

The use of the Kuripe is deeply rooted in indigenous traditions and is often accompanied by specific rituals and protocols to ensure its respectful and sacred usage. It is an integral part of the ceremonial practices of many indigenous tribes in the Amazon rainforest, facilitating the ingestion of Rapé as a means of spiritual cleansing, healing, and connection with the natural world.
