Noun. From Ulwa.
“The sensation of something crawling on your skin”
As you might guess from the picture, this could be similar to the English sensation of ‘goose bumps’ or ‘goose pimples.’ However, yuputka tends to lean towards a more specific feeling; one that you would get if you were on your own in the evening and something light brushed past you. It’s almost invoking some kind of fear, and not just a subconscious reaction.
(If you’ve never heard of the Ulwa language, it comes from the Misumalpan languages that have Native American roots!)
