Rapé Mulata

Rapé Mulata Nukini comes directly from Nukini tribe in Acre. No doubt about it, this is a strong snuff. Mulata Nukini is a blend of local organic moi , parika ashes, and pulverized leaves from a herb called Mulata or Mulatinho.

This rapé, Mulata Nukini, has a nice darker brown color and a nice Amazonian jungle scent. Altogether this Mulata is very powerful. besides the special and strong moi (moy) it is also the parika ash that provides extra power.
On the other hand, it’s the Mulata herb that brings a special quality to this blend. It has calming properties and helps to relax the nerves and gives relaxation in general. Mulata Nukini Rapé is an excellent tool for deep concentration/meditation, challenging but doable. The tribe people like taking Mulata Rapé in the afternoon as a medication. To me, it is a very strong rapé.

The Nukini Tribe

The Nukini belong to the Pano linguistic family and are about only 750 members. The tribe suffered severely during the era of latex production and afterward.  The Nukini lost A huge part of their culture, including their language. almost the entire ethnic group disappeared (Aguiar 2012). Due to this decline in members, many Nukini people had to mingle with members of other ethnicities in order to survive.

Exploitation and violence that started with the rubber industry, have turned into drug traffickers, loggers, and hunters that still pose a threat to this tribe. Despite all these challenges that the Nukini people had to face, at the present time.
The Nukini have a stable socio-economic situation and pursue economic activities like fishing and hunting, while there are also many nutritious plants, like mango, soursop, coconut, cashew, and jackfruit. And also pineapple, lemon, Barbados cherry, guava, avocado, pupunha, cupuaçu, and papaya nourishes the tribe. Yet the Nukini managed to survive by mingling with other groups and tribes. They build a strong socio-economic structure that enables them to be in close connection with nature that surrounds and feeds them.

Handling & Sorting

I sieve this Rapé Mulata and all other snuff coming from my shop through a 120-micron high-grade stainless steel mesh. I also store the Rapé stock dry and in vacuum containers to prolong freshness and quality.

This results in.

  • an extremely fine powder.
  • a guaranteed consistent fineness
  • optimal absorption of the snuff
