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. In 1977 there were less than 200 Katukina people, but the population is steadily recovering. Chanting rituals and profound forest survival skills keep this group united and in harmony with the rich Amazonian environment they come from.
What is Rapé?
Rapé 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 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.
