What is Hapé?
Hapé is a legal tobacco, tree bark, and herb-based shamanic snuff, also known as rapé (pronounced rah-pay). It is a sacred medicine carried by indigenous tribes throughout South America, especially native to Brazil and Peru. Deeply cleansing and powerfully healing, it assists in grounding, opening and realigning the energetics of the chakra system, decalcifying the pineal gland and clarifying the third eye, clearing away mental confusion and negativity and reestablishing a conscious connection to Mother Nature, the breath and to Spirit. Engaged with respect and often shared in tribal council and ceremonies, this medicine is a trusted ally and an honored sacrament.
Produced by the Amazonian tribe of the same name, the rare rapé made entirely from green plants has an intense green color and a deeply pleasant, fresh aroma that recalls the smell of the jungle after the rain. According to the tribe, it is produced from an herb known as Awiri, and its components are not burned or roasted, making it a “live” rapé. This medicine checks the energy of the individual’s body, bringing calmness, focus and concentration.
This rapé can be gentle in comparison to others that contain tobacco, which makes it an excellent tool for the times you want a more mild effect, for the beginner, or for those who would prefer not to work with tobacco as frequently. It of course also blends well with other Tobacco's, Rapé or ashes, to create a personal and unique blend. Very opening and deeply subtle.

The Kaxinawá people (Huni Kuin)
are an indigenous people of Brazil and Peru. The Kaxinawá are also known as the Cashinauá, Caxinauá. This name comes from “kashi” or “bat” and “nawa” meaning “outsiders” or “foreigners.” Their autonym is Huni Kuin or “real men” or “true people,” from Huni “man” and Kuin meaning “real” or “true.” Their language belongs to the Pano linguistic family, which they call hatxa-Kuin (true language). The population is approximately 4,000 people. The Kaxinawá account for 42% of the indigenous population of Acre state in Western Brazil.
The Kaxinawá tribe uses rapé for different purposes. For example, for the relief of physical pain and headaches and cleaning of sinuses. In addition, the Kaxinawá apply snuff for mental healing. They mostly do this in combination with chanting, and in ceremony. Rapé connects the tribe with spirits of the jungle and (depending on the specific ingredients) it can cure, heighten concentration, improve hunting or be a connector to the spirit of nature. The Kaxinawá like to experiment and use a wide range of ingredients for their snuffs.

Three different ways of blowing
The yawanawa talk about 3 different ways to blow the rapé:
-short and strong: to wake up, get present
-long and strong: to clean the mind & spirit
-long, starting soft and strong in the end: for meditation, entering into trance, ceremonial use.
Spirit of Nature
In some tribes, it is the women who gather the ingredients and make the Rapé, and others are made by the healer of the tribe. Typically they are made in small batches with specific intentions for the ceremony or person being treated. These are very powerful, profoundly healing and cleansing on many levels. The use of Rapé aims to connect one to the spirits of nature while invoking that power to bring about physical and spiritual healing.
Kuripe or Tepi
Traditionally, it is administered through either the Tepi or Kuripe. The Kuripe is a for self-administration and the Tepi is used when blowing the snuff for another person. The V-shaped applicator or Kuripe, connects the nostril to the mouth. 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.
Opening the Chakras
In general, the tribes believe Rapé facilitates the opening and clearing of the chakras, facilitates a sense of grounding and connection to the earth. Some think it supports the release of disease from the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Furthermore some say that using rapé opens the third-eye chakra, decalcifies the pineal gland, clears mental fog and confusion. Finally it releases negative thought patterns and most of all it supports our connection to the breath and expands our connection to Spirit.
