This Kaxinawa (Huni Kuin) tribal Rapé was made by two shamans. The sons of the 80 year old shaman of a village in the Tarauaca municipality in the state of Acre, Brazil. This Rapé is made from a herb called Bunatura or Kupy, Yapa tree ashes and Moi Tabaco. The Bunatura plant is good to be used for Rapé as it cleans the body, according to the makers. This Rapé has a wonderful Chocolate and Mint-like aroma that almost resembles to that of ice cream. Very rare and we have never come across such a delightful sweet aromatic tribal blend. It can be considered a mild but full and allround Rapé. Sourced by a traveler that made friends with remote settlements in the forests of Acre, Brazil. The money they make by producing this Rapé goes towards the needs of the family and the community and is used to finish building their house of medicine.
This is an extremely fine and dry powder. It takes great effort to produce such a fine powder at a 150 micron fineness. This is our standard because this provides the best Rapé experience. All our products are processed to a high standard and consistent fineness and dryness, using laboratory grade sieves and dehydrating equipment, before packaging.

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.
