This Yawanawa Rape is named after its creator. Kapakuru is a member of the Aldeia (village) of Nova Esperanza in the Yawanawà tribal lands where he works as a school teacher teaching traditional language to the younger generations. A very important issue for maintaining their culture. Many tribes have lost their original language and with it an important part of their identity. In their village Kapakuru is very much respected and liked for his powerful Rapé, as well as his force when blowing the medicine. Applying a good Rapé admistration is considered a science and the effect can depend a lot on the intention and mental state of the person who blows it. It is the vital energy of the other you receive. In the tribes, most people, especially the elder, don’t let just any person apply Rapé to them. It has to be an elder or respected Shaman. Kapakuru follows the basic Yawanawà recipe of Tabacco and ashes made from the bark of the Tsunu tree. This fine powdered blend can be considered reasonably powerful and has strong expelling properties. in some cases sneezing can be expected. Minimal powder lodges in the throat and after removal leaves the user clear and free of blockages.
This is an extremely fine powder, creamy to the touch. It takes great effort to produce such a fine powder, entirely void of stems, veins, grains and bits, and at a 125 micron fineness. This is our standard. All of our Rapé varieties are processed to a high standard and a consistent fineness, using laboratory grade seives and milling equipment.

The Yawanawá, or the tribe of the white-lipped peccary, are a small tribe of 1,300 people, living remotely in only a few villages along the Gregório River. They are known as warriors, as they always keep on fighting, even in hard times. At some point in history their tribe was almost extinct, with only about 300 members left. Nowadays their tribe has grown again, and their traditions and knowledge have been conserved in a very strict way.
The Yawanawá were the first tribe that initiated a woman to become a shaman, setting a huge example in the history of shamans. In their language rapé is called Rume and the Yawanawá preferably blend Rume with Tsunu ashes and mapacho, which gives this special blend a very refined taste. In addition, Tsunu is used for healing purposes and has a supportive role during ayahuasca ceremonies.
