Experience the Relaxing and Energy-Cleansing Yucuna Rapé (Chapune) from the Colombian Amazon Rainforest
Indulge in the traditional snuff of the Yucuna tribe with our Chapune Yucuna Rapé. This black rapé is known for its strength and is perfect for those seeking a relaxing and energy-cleansing experience. Made by Leonarda Yucuna Muca, a wise grandmother from ‘La Pedrera’ by the Mirití Paraná river, this snuff is a product of the women-led process of making traditional snuff in the community.
The Yucuna tribe members use Chapune snuff in ceremonies to bring harmony to the group. The local Shamans, known as ‘Curacas,’ use the snuff as a powerful tool for rebalancing and during traditional festivities before dancing around the fire. They also use it during important meetings where community decision-making debates are taking place. Additionally, the snuff is used for blessing the ‘Chontaduro,’ a highly nutritious peach palm fruit that is a staple food among all Amazonian tribes.
What is Rapé?
Rapé is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly tribal people from Brazil and Peru. The snuff is a ground mixture of plants, tree bark, seeds, and ash, and 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.
