The Kanamari Tribe
Discover the rich history and traditions of the Kanamari tribe, who speak a language from the Katukinan family and live isolated in the Amazon jungle. With only 2,800 members remaining in the state of Amazonas in Brazil, the Kanamari people possess a ritual heritage that has lasted for generations. The community we work with belongs to a small group of only 60 Kanamari people who live in the community Umariaçú in the upper part of the Itaquaí river. The Kanamari people are known for their natural healing methods and facial tattoos of the older generations.
Meet Raimunda Kanamari, a 70-year-old woman who keeps the tradition of preparing rapé alive. She learned the art from her tribe elders and from neighboring groups like the Tanimuka. She combines her work cultivating food for her family with gathering healing plants and preparing remedies. Every 3 months, she travels downstream the Yavari river to reach the Brazilian city of Atalaya, where she exchanges her remedies for salt, matches, pots, and other products that are not available in the jungle. Her weekly visit is always highly anticipated.
What is Rapé?
Rapé is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, including the Kanamari people. It is made by grinding a mixture of plants, tree bark, seeds, and ash into a fine powder. The snuff is then blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’ or ‘Kuripe’. Each tribe has its own rapé formula, which is typically made in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasion.
The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to nature and a sense of grounding. It clears mental fog and confusion, eliminating negative thought patterns. These powerful snuffs bring about physical and spiritual wellness.
