This powerful new Rapé comes from Colombia. A dark brown dust based on Nicotiana rustica. Further specifics are considered a secret and were not shared with us.
Our friend and supplier Raul Yucuna is one of the oldest men in his tribe. Hafo Aneco is the name of his community, located a few kilometers from Leticia. His grand father the Shaman Kirui taught him to make the Rapés and mixes when they lived in Mirití Paraná before they fled from the agression of the rubber industry. All the Rapé's from Raul have a very nice aroma, and they are energizers, they help accomplishing and keeping mental clarity. The Yacunas use Rapé during special ceremonies and meetings with friends while having deep conversations. The energy boost in some of his Rapé comes from the mix of the Amazonian Cacao with the Rustica tobbacco. The combination produces a very special balanced combination of feelings and mental insights.
This is one of 7 new varieties of Rapé we obtained from a friend who travelled Peru and Colombia earlier this year. This journey resulted in an entirely new range and style of Rapé's, from new sources. Some of which are documented with pictures of the maker and the plants involved in the production. These new Rapés can be characterized as very dark "brown" (proportionally less ashes are used than in other Rapé's), very grounding and intensely potent.
As this Rapé came in quite a coarsely ground form, we have reprocessed it into a fine and creamy 125 micron powder: Extremely fine dust.
Other names: Yacuna, Yucuna.
The Yucuna or Yukuna Matapí people belong to the Arawak linguistic family. The people we work with inhabit land around the town Leticia in Colombia and the mestizo town of La Pedrera. Traditionally this group lived on the watershed of the Mirití-Paraná river in the North-east of the Colombian Amazonas. The Yacuna tribe consists of only 450 individuals currently, and most of them live close to the Matapí tribe on the sides of the Miriti-Paraná river.
There are few studies and reports of the Yucuna people. The first references come from the rubber trafficking time during the 18th century. Since then the tribe has faced many migrations and relocations.
Their explanation and understanding of their place within the cosmos includes the presence of the Karipulakena people, the Yurupari spirit and the Shaman. The Karipulakena people are the sons and daughters of the world. They created the all living creatures of the water. The Yurupari spirit is the main owner of the mountain and is the highest rank in the hierarchy of mythic owners of the world. The Shaman specializes in the religious and magic world, and he has the higher human authority. He prevents and heals sicknesses. He also is the one who asks for permission to use the resources of the earth.
