Rapé Onça

Rapé Onça/Jaguar is a mix made by a Rapé master from the Nukini community.
A great, strong, and wonderful  Rapé.  It’s a beautiful and powerful medicine with a strong effect, good for deep meditation.

Organic Sabiá, Sanu ash, and some Shamans magic make up this greyish Rapé. The shaman has animals that protect and accompany him in his spiritual labors. In this case, the Jaguar spirit enters the ashes through its maker during the manufacturing and assists those who use the Rapé Onça.

The jaguar is an animal that can at the same time frighten us and may evoke immense respect. He is intelligent, agile, smart, and has spiritual energy very similar to the Juguarleopard. its power helps the shaman energetically in his curing works, evoking protection of the space, silence, and precision.

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 Onça 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
