Rapé Shawadawa

This Rapé Shawadawa comes from the tribe also referred to as “People of the Macaw”. My dear friend Paco from Acre in Brazil helped me to connect with them and get access to their beloved medicine that they were happy to share. Through our communications, the  Shawadawa asked me to share this message. “We wish all people outside of Brazil blessings in their studies with forest medicine”. This Shawadawa Rapé is another unique Snuff from the Amazonian forest. It is greyish in appearance and has nice aromas and plenty of force.

About the Tribe

Shawadawa (also known as Arara del Acre, Shawandaua, Shawanaua, Shawanauá, Shaonahua, or Shaodawa) is an indigenous group that inhabits the southwest of the Brazilian state of Acre. This tribe came in contact with Western “civilization” only at the beginning of the 20th century. The entire tribe currently consists of only 550 souls. Shawã means Macaws and Dawa means family, so they are the Macaw family.

Today, the main objective of the Shawãdawa people is to protect their lands, and their forests, where all our natural medicines are present. They are also always looking to save and maintain their culture, and the teachings of their ancestors.

Handling & Sorting

I sieve this rapé Rapé Shawadawa 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
