This variety of Rapé has been made by a member of the Kuntanawa tribe and is prepared with a base of local organically grown Tobacco and contains ashes from the Sapota tree. The special character of this Rapé comes from a herb the Kuntanawa call Tipy. Tipy is known to be useful in meditation practices and is widely used by the indigenous for spiritual cleansing.

A powerful effect is experienced upon first contact with the nose which subsides quickly opening the sinuses and leaving a pleasant aroma in its wake. Some sneezing is likely to occur with some of the preparation eventualy making its way into the throat. Being a very fine grade of powder most is absorbed directly into the nose. Overall it's fairly gentle on the nasal passages and can be used more than once a day as it clogs the channels a lot a less than other types of Rapè, due to the softness of the Sapota ashes.

This is another genuine tribal Rapé from our close friend who lives in Brazil and is exchanging with the tribes people. This Rapé was made around July 2016.

Other names: Sapota, Zapota, Tipy.

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).
