Colombian Siriano Rapé | Samahuma tree and Flowers | #125
Siriano Rapé 125 is one-of-a-kind jewel, specially crafted for rapé connoisseurs. It’s uniqueness originates from the remoteness of the tribe where it comes from. Siriano people, also known as Suryana – Chiranga People, integrated the snuff rituals to their culture, learned from the neighbor tribes they shared their territory with on the Apaporis region deep in the most unexplored Amazon jungle of Colombia.
It is prepared with Mapacho plant, Samahuma Kapok tree, and white Yarumo and heliconia flowers. It is used by members of the tribe at sunset after finishing their daily chores, usually after fishing and hunting. Much of it is traded within the community in snail shells.
The towering presence of the magical Samahuma kapok tree in combination with the blissful etheric fragrance of the exotic flowers from the forest makes Siriano Rapé 125 a sacred and unique blend.
About the Siriano tribe Suryana – chiranga people
The Siriano people are located in the region or province known as Vaupés in southern Colombia. They share their territory with the Tukano, Tatuyo, Desana, Carapana and Yuruti people, all of whom bear great cultural and social practices that express their original world views and mythologies. Horticulture and hunting practices, as well as the use of “malocas” as communal housing are all part of their distinct cultural identity. The Siriano indigenous people population is not larger than 740 individuals.
The Samahuma tree and flowers
The Samahuama tree or Kapok tree is an imposing Amazonian tree. It is considered sacred among the local tribes of the Amazon from Colombia to Brazil and it is also one of the tallest trees in the jungle. Known as “the mother of all trees” it is believed to have medicinal properties; Siriano people believe the tree has magical powers. They also believe in the vibrational wisdom and healing properties of beautiful colorful flowers.
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 blend of ground 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 medicine man or shaman. The snuff is typically made in small batches according to the specific intentions or needs of the person being treated or ceremonial purposes. These snuffs are very powerful, profoundly healing and cleansing on many levels. The use of Rapé aims to awake our connection to the spirit of nature while invoking our 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 in a way that allows to blow the snuff into the nose.
Opening Body’s Energy Channels
In general, indigenous people believe Rapé facilitates the opening and clearing of the body’s vital energy flow which facilitates a sense of grounding and connection to the earth. Some think it liberates physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies from disease. Others suggest that using Rapé opens what is called the third-eye chakra, can decalcifies the pineal gland and clears mental fog and confusion. Finally, it is believed Rapé can stop negative thought patterns but most of all has the ability to reconnect us to our breathing rhythms and expands our spiritual awareness.
Siriano Rapé 125 shares and excels all these properties with a very fine blend.
