Bottle, 25 Ml, 15 Gr from Brazil (SKU 3299)
Expected new batch in October. This rare tribal Rapé is made with locally produced organic Moy Tabacco (Nicotiana rustica) and the ashes of Parika (Commiphora leptophloeos), a traditional antibacterial ingredient from the Amazon. This variety of Rapè has a strong inital sting followed by a widening on the nostrils which leads to a calming and relaxed state of being. Its creamy undertones and flowery overtones bring the user into a clear headed state of awareness and the channels feel clean and open to fresh air. More information can be read below.
Packed in 25 ml clear plastic bottles containing 15 gr.
Kuntanawa means People of the Coconut, because they are known to traditionally eat mainly palm nuts. Their chief, Pedro Kuntanawa, made this particular Rapé. Made with a locally produced and harvested organic Moy Tabacco (Nicotiana rustica) and the ashes of Parika (Commiphora leptophloeos), a traditional antibacterial ingredient from the Amazon. This variety of Rapè has a strong inital sting followed by a widening on the nostrils which leads to a calming and relaxed state of being. Its creamy undertones and flowery overtones bring the user into a clear headed state of awareness and the channels feel clean and open to fresh air. Eyes will most likely water and some residue will make its way into the throat. As with most Parika types the antibacterial effects will keep the user clear and free of any infection that could occur from daily life.
This is another genuine tribal, and exquisitely powerful Rapé from our close friend who lives in Brazil and is exchanging with the tribes people. This specific Rapé was made for only that occasion at that time, and can not be repeated again. Only 1 kilo was ever produced. A must-have for the Rapé collector !
Other names: Kuntanawa Parica, Parika, Kuntanawa Grey.
Like the Nukini, the Kuntanawa tribe became almost extinct due to the massacres of the latex cycle. One single family was left after the rubber boom and only since the beginning in 2000 a small group of Kuntanawa started to claim their indigenous heritage (Pantoja et al. 2014; Labate et al. 2014). Unfortunately, their culture is still under threat and the Kuntanawa are still struggling to regain full ethnic recognition and they are trying to regain their territory. Nowadays, there are only about 250 members left that are scattered throughout the region of Acre, Brazil. In order to survive, the Kuntanawa are joining other Pano linguistic tribes and they are organizing festivals together to share their traditions, their rituals, and their culture with foreign visitors. This small Pano linguistic tribe strongly values the ritualistic use of Ayahuasca to teach them and to guide them. The Kuntanwa even hold a strong believe that Ayahuasca will unravel their ancient knowledge and bring back their partly lost traditions (Pantoja et al. 2014). However, their language seems to be irrecoverably lost (Labate et al. 2014).
