Kanamari Rapé (Wild Cacao) – A Sacred Blend from the Amazon Rainforest
Experience the power of traditional healing with Kanamari Rapé (Wild Cacao) – an aromatic snuff made exclusively for us by Raimunda Kanamari, one of the tribe’s elders and a true Kanamari Shaman. This sacred blend is a combination of wild cacao fruit, Virola, and Pashaca, and is known for provoking pleasant feelings of relaxation and sweet dreams.
The Kanamari Tribe
The Kanamari tribe is a deeply rooted and mobile community living in the lower Amazon region of Peru and Brazil, away from the influences of settlers. They are known for their natural healing methods, or ‘curandeiros’, and facial tattoos. The Kanamari believe they were created by Tamakori, who first created them and then later left to create the rest of humankind. The Kanamaris from whom we are sourcing this rapé, belong to a small community of only 60 Kanamaris that live in the community of Umariaçú in the upper part of the Itaquaí river.
What is Rapé?
Rapé is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly tribal people from Brazil and Peru. It is a ground mixture of plants, tree bark, seeds, and ash, blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’ or ‘Kuripe’. Each tribe has its own rapé formula, and the selection, mixture, and grinding process are regarded as a ritual only to be performed by a reputable healer. The snuff is typically made in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasion.
