What is Rapé? Ninawa "Pai da Mata" - Sarava

What is Rapé? Ninawa “Pai da Mata”

We bring you a second video with Ninawa “Pai da Mata” (father of the forest), which Ninawa and I recorded in Brazil. Ninawa is a great shaman of the Huni Kuin people and a spiritual leader in the village of Novo Futuro on the Humanita River in Acre, Brazil.

This time we asked Ninawa for a few words on the subject of medicine and especially on Rapé. As Ninawa himself very well captured, the medicine behind us came to our continent, which is not their original home, they are somehow visiting, and that brings with it various pitfalls that may be related to it. That is why it is important to always ask us how to work with medicine, from whom we want to receive the medicine, where it comes from, whether it was prepared by it itself, and if not, how it got to it, if it knows the people who prepared it.

At the end of the video you can see how such Rapé looks 🙂
