The Katukina People
The Katukina or Catuquinha are an indigenous group that inhabits the southwestern Brazilian state of Acre. They belong to the same Pano linguistic family as the Marúbo and the Kawanawas. Despite having a population of less than 200 in 1977, the Katukina people are steadily recovering. Their profound forest survival skills and chanting rituals keep them united and in harmony with the rich Amazonian environment they come from.
What is Rapé?
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’ in Portuguese, is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly tribal people from Brazil and Peru. Rapé blends contain a ground mixture of plants, tree bark, seeds, and ash. The fine powder is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’ or ‘Kuripe’. Each tribe has its own rapé formula, and it is usually women who gather the ingredients. 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.
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.
