Tete Pawã

Tete Pawã is the indigenous name for the Harpy, one of the most sacred birds in the Amazon. The harpy bird is a spiritual guide for various Amazon tribes. The Brazilian name for the harpy is gavião real which translates as “royal falcon.”

Kuntanawa Rapé

The Rapé produced by Kuntanawa has a unique vibration.  A strong spiritual connection that brings presence and calm. Sometimes, they add other plants with cosmological forces that bring us luck, tranquility, and other benefits. They are commonly used in other ways to provide protection or blessings.

They say that such plants bring us strength and clarity to have correct attitudes and take the right decisions. The interesting thing is that the Kuntanwa Rapé seems to be more active in the region of the chest and heart than the head. Being typically mild, it burns less.
Many people consider this Rapé an opener of the heart. It contains arapiraca and ash “Tsunu” (Platycyamus regnellii). Some other recipes may contain Samaúma, Nissural, Eric, Sanssara, and other plants.

About the Kuntanawa Tribe

The Kuntanawa people (known as “the tribe of the babassu Palm or Babassu coconut”) has always defended their spiritual tradition as their principle of existence.
They have always used plants that connect with the beings of the forest and the spirits. Thus learned how to heal the tribe with traditional medicine and to this day they keep their practices.
