This is one of several varieties of pure ashes that were collected for us. A friend who was traveling the entire South Americas in 2015 has visited many different tribes in search for knowledge and exchange of shamanic plants, ashes and Rapé snuffs. After negotiating the contributions and the purpose and goals of this exchange it resulted in a promising benefit for all involved. Over time we were presented with a unique collection of genuine ashes and Rapé's that were produced with the intention to be shared with a new and wide audience, worldwide. And to work towards a new future exchange of knowledge and medicines between cultures. This unique item is one of its kind and comes from a new collaboration between cultures far apart.

The Yawanawá, or the tribe of the white-lipped peccary, are a small tribe of 1,300 people, living remotely in only a few villages along the Gregório River. They are known as warriors, as they always keep on fighting, even in hard times. At some point in history their tribe was almost extinct, with only about 300 members left. Nowadays their tribe has grown again, and their traditions and knowledge have been conserved in a very strict way.
The Yawanawá were the first tribe that initiated a woman to become a shaman, setting a huge example in the history of shamans. In their language rapé is called Rume and the Yawanawá preferably blend Rume with Tsunu ashes and mapacho, which gives this special blend a very refined taste. In addition, Tsunu is used for healing purposes and has a supportive role during ayahuasca ceremonies.
