Nukini Onça

This powerful variety of Rapé projects us into a state of deep connection with our own spirit and with the strength and qualities of the Jaguar (Onça Pintada means jaguar in Portuguese).

For many cultures, the jaguar is sacred, king of all animals and spiritual guide: almost a deity for cultures like the Olmecs, the Mayas and the Aztecs. According to Mayan legend, the jaguar —balam— gave its strength to different Mayan deities, such as K’inich Ajaw, the God of the Sun.

The spirit of the Jaguar represents power, grace and stealth in the dark; his power lies in silence, which he employs as a weapon. Silence is highly respected among American Indians and is seen as a sacred state of consciousness. He is also recognized by his night vision.

Nukini Tribe

The Nukini have survived great adversities, such as epidemic fevers and the expansion of the rubber exploitation front. Throughout the first decades of the 20th century, they joined the rubber company and remained in the Môa River region until today.After decades working as rubber extractors, the Nukini obtained official recognition of their lands in the late 1970s.Due to contact with rubber tappers, small producers and riverside residents of the upper Juruá region, the Nukini incorporated many of their customs, but they retain their individuality, especially with regard to their social organization.
