Before being contacted by non-indigenous people, Rikbaktsa people had a ritual of passage into adulthood where boys would have their noses pierced so they could wear adornments that indicated they were no longer boys, but men.
This tradition is increasingly disappearing, as teenage boys say "it's too painful and not beautiful."
A man shows his nose pierced with a special adornment made with macaw feathers.

قبل تواصل قبيلة ريكباكتسا مع السكان غير الأصليين، كان أفراد القبيلة يمارسون طقس عبور إلى مرحلة الرشد حيث يتمّ ثقب أنوف الصبيان كي يستطيعوا وضع الزينة التي تشير إلى بلوغهم مرحلة الرجولة.
بيد أنّ هذا التقليد بدأ يتلاشى مع مرور الزمن حيث يقول شبانٌ مراهقون: «إنها عملية مؤلمة جداً ولا تمتّ إلى الجمال بصلة»
رجلٌ يعرض الثقب في أنفه المزين بريش طير المكاو.
