Awiry is a plant used by the Apurina people to produce their renowned green Rapé. There are no additional ashes inside the mixture, as Awiry is the main and most important ingredient. The makes simply dry the leaves, ground them, and sift the powder, which they receive in the process. The final blend does not have any tobacco in it. This Rapé can only be created during the dry season when the river is low, because the Awiry grows near to the river. Awiry is usually inhaled using a straight tube, which is a different snuffing method than most kinds.

Shamanism is an important part of the culture of Apurina.
It is believed that a strong shaman never dies but becomes bewitched and continues his journey. Apurina shamans work with stones and heal with special leaves that they chew katsoparu with a large amount of snuff that the shaman and other tribe eat, which they call awiry. For true healing, the shaman sucks the disease out of the body, often visualized by minerals, stones that extract from their sick bodies. Then the shaman puts the stone in his own body and recommends various plant treatments. Dreaming is another shamanic way of treating the sick, the shaman's spirit travels and performs specific tasks carried out by other animals. Often, the shaman directs these animals to prevent animal attacks such as snakes or jaguars.
