We have very sad news about our dear friend Fernando Katukina, who we have admired and loved so much.
We have been closely working together with the Katukina tribe and Fernando Katukina himself.
Fernando has provided us with different types of Rapé and we have been sponsoring different projects with the tribe.
One was the medicine house and the other was the waterwell for the new village in the jungle.
Please read this very saddening story.
"Death from cardiac arrest occurred weeks after he was the first to vaccinate against Covid-19 to set an example for the Acre people.

We have recently donated 2500 British Pounds to the Katukina tribe to build a water well, that provides fresh water for their new project in the forest to support their new medicine house, that we donated for last year. This is a short update to show you the progress. More information and photos and videos of the project will be posted here soon! If you feel like supporting the Katukina tribe with us, we will offer a way to accept donations very soon! We thank every one of our customers, because it is you that made this support possible!
An interview with Fernando Katukina about the medicine house can be read here.
For more information, and if you wish to help us support the tribe, please contact us.
