Kuntanawa • Samaúma BarkKBB_0.5
Casca do caule da Samaúma rapeh is made by the Kuntanawa tribe of Brazil.
The Kuntanawa skillfully use the bark from the branches of this mighty tree to create a rapeh which guards us against evil spirits and protects from diseases. The Katukina believe that this rapeh can help us with our humanity and for them, it is the rapeh they prefer when calling the Kuin Ruman Tanani spirit (or tobacco man). The spirit is called to help clear diseases from within a healing ceremony.
The Kuntanawa recognize that the Samaúma is the central character of the forest, possessing the pivotal energy to which all other life yields. They believe that the Samaúma possesses the spirit of a human being.
There are many folks selling imitation rapeh, but this is the genuine article. Samaúma Bark rapeh is made under the supervision of Haru Kuntanawa the tribal leader at the kuntamanã village and sent directly to us.
