We are launching a new snuff taken from the private stock of our dear friend, Cacique Biraci Brasil.

With the purchase of this lot, we were able to help his project of food independence for the people.

500 coconut trees from the Puyanawa people were bought and planted in Aldeia Sagrada, the new Aldeia Yawanawa founded by him in the land where the people lived at the time of first contact.

The village, the last one up the river, is a place of spirituality and peace, where the tribes used to diet with ancient shamans and where the elders are buried. The purchase of snuff allowed us to help Cacique Biraci Brasil make his dream come true in the middle of the virgin forest.

It was Biraci who started the walk back to the roots of his people after losing almost everything at the hands of rubber tappers and evangelical pastors. He was the first in a long time to go on an initiation diet, which reconnected him with his ancestors.

One of the forgotten medicines he brought back was Rumã, also known as rapé. He is, indeed, one of the people responsible for you being able to consecrate this indigenous medicine today.

In the early 1990s, the indigenous resistance movement emerged, led by young people who began to use their voices to call for attention to the cause of indigenous peoples. Biraci was one of those people. Today, he is fully dedicated to the spirituality of his people.
