Abraham Patusca da Silveira, best known as Araken Patusca, or Araken (July 7, 1905 – January 24, 1990) was a Brazilian footballer who played striker. He was born in Santos.

Having been three consecutive times runner-up with Santos (1927, 1928, 1929) at the Campeonato Paulista, he won the title with them in 1931, and then in 1935 with Independente.
