The Nukini are another tribe who nearly lost their culture and medicine Shamanic Snuff tradition with the rubber boom but brought it back more recently. Their snuffs became known as some of the most sought after mainly because of the high quality Nukini Rapé from our friend and partner Xiti Nukini. This particular Nukini Rapé was made by another member of his extended family.
The Nukini are a tribe that worked for the rubber bosses and as such mixed with them. Like this there is a part of the tribe that has non indigenous blood and maybe like that some of the plants and herbs from got incorporated in their culture through this mixture.
