Rapé Cumaru

Rapé Cumaru is a deep, dark brown variety thanks to its high proportion of Mapacho.

The ashes used in its elaboration come from the Cumaru tree, which, according to the Huni Kuin tradition, is a tree that does not rot, since it is “very true”; it is one of the densest and hardest woods found on the planet.

Rapé Cumaru has a great ground connection, and the ability to put the user in deep trance states. It easily reaches the back of the throat, and can sometimes cause nausea or be purgative.

Its properties are of spiritual protection.

Huni Kuin Tribe – Kaxinawá

Until 1946, the Kaxinawá of Peru remained isolated in the virgin forest, far from the rivers that the merchants navigated. They preferred independence and isolation to dependency that implied greater access to weapons and metal tools.

Through the Yaminawa they accomplished a few things, until in the mid-1940s they decided they needed more and sent a six-man team to the Taraya River for direct negotiations.

Over time, the Kaxinawá made the decision to seek contact with civilization, a decision with profound consequences, which was questioned by the Kaxinawá themselves, who a previous generation had chosen the opposite position. In this region, even today, live ethnic groups, Pano and Arawak, who avoid any contact with non-indigenous society.
