This exquisite new Rapé can be considered one of the strongest of all the types available. Deep, intensely grounding as well as extremely strong, and in most cases, overwhelming. The user should find a comfortable space to administer with some time to process the effects. Varied doses produce a range of healing and cleansing properties. In most cases it would be wise to start with as little as possible and increase as one gains more experience. Purging is quite possible and the after taste although quite pleasant is extremely strong and can cause a continuous stream of phlegm in the throat. Watering of the eyes is almost certain. Intention and setting should play an important aspect in the administration of this Rapé and one should take time and space to prepare for its effects. This variety would suit the more experienced user of Rapé’s. In other words: It is strong.
This is a new Rapé preparation made from traditional ingredients obtained from the Kaxinawa, and prepared in a new post shamanic fashion by a magician who understands the respect and honour needed to work with these plant spirits. This rare and very small production may never be repeated again exactly the same.
Other names: Huni Kuin, Kaxinawa.
Kaxinawa means "People of the Bat" and is a name that was given to them by other enemy tribes. They are one of the biggest tribes in Acre state spread over different areas of the state with many communities and still exist in Peru as well. The Kaxinawas or Huni kuin (meaning true humans) are considered to be one of the biggest tribes in Acre, as they account for 42% of the indigenous population. They belongs to the Pano linguistic tribes that habitat the Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon. Moreover, their leader is a respected shaman that vigorously stands up for his tribe in public and through organizations: he founded the União das Naçoes Indigenas (UNI/AC) and ASKARJ, and he is a cofounder of the Alliance of Forest Peoples and of the International Council on Human Rights (IACHR). These organizations are speaking for the rights of the indigenous communities, as well as for human rights and the protection of the rainforest (Aya Conference 2014, Ibiza).
Rapé in the Kaxinawas tribe is used for different purposes, such as the relief of physical pain and headaches, cleaning of the sinuses and alleviating snuffles. In addition, the Kaxinawas apply rapé for mental healing, mostly in combination with chanting. Rapé connects the tribe with spirits of the jungle and - depending on the exact ingredients - it can cure, heighten concentration, improve hunting, or be a connector with the spiritual nature.
