The Indigenous Land Colônia 27 began to be formed in 1972, with the arrival of three Huni Kuîn families who came from other regions of the state in search of better living conditions. They were families that came from Jordão (family of Afonso Mateus, shaman Kupy, and family of Carlos Mariano) and Feijó (family of Alfredo Sabino).
The land was donated by the mayor of Tarauacá to the head of one of these families, Mr Alfredo Sabino (Mana Huni Kuîn), now deceased (he died in December 2019), on the banks of igarapé 27 (called Pinuya by the Huni Kuîn) and there the Pinuya village was founded. At that time, the site still had a large percentage of forest cover, but all the hardwoods in the region had already been exploited by the mayor himself, including in the place that would become an Indigenous Land.
On October 30, 1991, it became recognized as an Indigenous Land and was demarcated with 105 hectares of extension. At that time of the demarcation, the lands were registered with the names of streams, in our case it was the “27”. The Indigenous Land Colônia 27 is located eight kilometers from the city of Tarauacá and is considered the smallest in the State of Acre, and has only one village, Pinuya. In 2002, the Indigenous Land was expanded. 200 hectares of land were donated by the Federal Government, as the village would be directly impacted with the paving of the BR-364. Thus, the Indigenous Land Colônia 27 currently has 305 hectares. Access to it is by land (branch) and, in the winter period, it is very difficult to reach the Indigenous Land.
After being awared the lands in 2002, the Huni Kuîn from the Pinuya village began the hard work of cleaning and preparing the space to build new houses, swidden fields and the beginning of reforestation, in the place where it was once native forest, later felled by orders from farmers for raising cattle.
In the old days, the shaman Kupy tells that the preparation of nixi pae (ayahuasca) was only prepared by the older shamans. Women, young people and children did not participate in the craft, it was a teaching they had been following since when they learned from their ancestors. The nixi pae was consecrated only in moments of healing or in some moment of study of their work within the village, when they drank they asked the nixi pae to guide them how they could develop their healing work with medicines, to cure the illness of the sick person. .
Currently, within the Pinuya village, young men, women and children participate in the preparation from beginning to end of the work, and also all consecrate together in the evenings of ceremonies that take place at night in the sacred shubuã space. The nixi pae is consecrated inside the village during the day during the work of the feitio, and sometimes it is consecrated when we have studies on healing medicines and visit the queen of the forest, the samaúma.
Evenings with the sacred medicine nixi pae were also not conducted by young people and women, but with the permission of the shaman Kupy and the Yuxibu beings, with regard to medicine, they currently do the conducting serving the nixi pae, making the sacred prayers in a traditional in the voice using the maracá, and also using modern instruments: guitar, drum, atabaque, charango and others.
