Description

Rapé Onça/Jaguar is a mix made by a Rapé master from the Nukini community.
A great, strong and wonderful  Rapé.  It’s a beautiful and powerful medicine with strong effect, good for deep meditation.

Organic Tobacco Sanu ash and some Shamans magic make up this greyish Rapé. The shaman has animals that protect and accompany him in his spiritual labors. In this case, the Jaguar spirit enters the ashes through its maker during the manufacturing and assist those who use the Rapé Onça.

The jaguar is an animal that can at the same time frighten us and may evoke immense respect. He is intelligent, agile, smart and has an spiritual energy very similar to the leopard. its power helps the shaman energetically in his curing works, evoking for protection of the space, silence, precision.

The Nukini tribe.

The Nukini belong to the Pano linguistic family and are about only 750 members. The tribe suffered severely during the era of latex production and afterward.  The Nukini lost A huge part of their culture, including their language. almost the entire ethnic group disappeared (Aguiar 2012). Due to this decline in members, many Nukini people had to mingle with members of other ethnicities in order to survive.

Exploitation and violence that started with the rubber industry, has turned into drug traffickers, loggers, and hunters that still pose a threat to this tribe. Despite all these challenges that the Nukini people had to face, at the present time, the Nukini have a stable socio-economic situation and pursue economic activities like fishing and hunting, while there are also many nutritious plants, like mango, soursop, coconut, cashew, jackfruit. And also pineapple, lemon, Barbados cherry, guava, avocado, pupunha, cupuaçu and papaya that nourish the tribe.

Yet the Nukini managed to survive by mingling with other groups and tribes. They build a strong socio-economic structure that enables them to be in close connection with nature that surrounds and feeds them. I regard to Rapé there are some women of the tribe who make Rapé but its very clear that the man make theirs as well.

Tepi and Kuripe

Traditionally Rapé is administered through a pipe made out of bamboo or bone. The Tepi is a blowpipe that you can use to administer another person. When receiving Rapé the other blows it through both nostrils. In general, the shape of the Tepi is straight, curved or V-shaped. A different form is self-administration. For this, you use a Kuripe. The Kuripe has a V- shape and connects the mouth to the nostril. In this case, you blow the Rapé to yourself.

I sieve this Rapé Onça and all other Rapé coming from my shop through a 120-micron high-grade stainless steel mesh. This makes an extremely fine powder. It’s labor-intensive but guarantees a consistent fineness, cleanness and optimal absorption of the Snuff. I store the Rapé stock dry and in vacuum containers to prolong freshness and quality.
