RAPÉ DOS INDIOS

What is Rapé?

Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’, is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly from the tribal people of Brazil and Perú. The finely ground powder is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi. Each tribe has its own formula and is ceremoniously prepared by specific members of the tribe. Traditional Rapés contain a ground blend of plants, tree barks, seeds, and ash. Among the different types of ashes used, the most common come from  tsunu, Murici, Yarumo and Inga native trees.

Connecting to the Spirit of Nature

In some tribes, it is women who gather the ingredients and make Rapé while in others it is prepared by the  tribe’s reputable healer. The snuff is typically made in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasions . These snuffs are very powerful, profoundly healing and cleansing on many levels. The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection  to the spirit of nature while invoking power to bring about physical and spiritual healing.

Tepi or Kuripe

Traditionally, Rapé is administered through either the ‘Tepi’ or Kuripe’. The Tepi applicator is used when one person administers the snuff and another receives it. The ‘Tepi’ is a long blow pipe that connects the nostril of the receiver with the mouth of the blower, who then blows the rapé into the nose of the receiver. The ‘Kuripe’ is for self-application. The V-shaped applicator connects the nostril to the mouth when blowing the snuff into the nose.

Opening the Body’s Energy Channels

In general, the tribes believe Rapé facilitates the flow and clearing of the body’s energy channels known as ‘chakras’ which facilitates a sense of grounding and connection to the earth.  Some think it  frees the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies from disease. It is also said that using Rapé opens what is called the third-eye chakra, can decalcify the pineal gland and clears mental fog and confusion.  It eliminates  negative thought patterns , but mainly brings back our breath awareness and expands our spiritual feelings.
