The Kuntanawa People
The Kuntanawa people were allegedly exterminated during the armed persecution of indigenous peoples in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. By 2008, the population was estimated at only 400 individuals. The last known descendants of this group are members of an extended family known until recently in upper Juruá as ‘the Cables of Milton’. The Kuntanawa people have had a revival of their cultural traditions in recent times.
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.
