YW Força Femenina

Yawanawa Snuff Força Femenina is a very special classic, and one of our favorites. Follow the recipe of the Yawanawá; finely sifted raccoon and Tsunu ash; a suitable mix for the most refined tastes.

This Rapé has its own history, already on its way to becoming a legend: Putany, Nawashahu’s mother, and her sister Hushahu, were the first women of the Yawanawá people to start in the Rare Muká, which represents the most advanced study of shamanism in its culture.

Together, they broke the taboo of the Yawanawá tradition that prevented women from using the sacred medicines of Uni (ayahuasca) and Rume (Rapé in the language of the Yawanawá). The Yawanawa were the first tribe to start a woman to become a shaman.

Tsunu is highly valued for healing and as a support during Ayahuasca ceremonies.

Yawanawá tribe

The Yawanawá are known as “the swordsmen” as they have always fought, even in difficult times. At one point the tribe was almost extinct and only 300 people survived.

Today their tribe has grown, and their morals and knowledge have been conserved in an extremely strict way, with their work they develop a new model of sustainability that allows the Yawanawá to protect the jungle and engage with the outside world on their own terms, without lose their cultural and spiritual identity.
