The Nukini tribe, known as the people of the jaguar or Onça Pintada in Portuguese, deeply connect with the jaguar as their shamanic power animal. Xiti, a young cultural and spiritual leader of the tribe, creates the Nukini Onça Rapé blend with his unique selection of sacred herbs. This potent, masculine medicine is perfect for deep meditation, facilitating a grounding and balancing experience.
Upon using the Nukini Onça Rapé blend, individuals may experience an initial intensity followed by a soothing sensation, clearing the mind and opening up the user to a heightened state of awareness. This blend is said to have purifying and detoxifying properties, which may assist in cleansing the body of negative energies and toxins.
The Nukini people belong to the Pano-speaking groups and share a devastating history due to the rubber industry since the mid-19th century. The Terra Indígena Nukini is located near the Serra do Divisor National Park, forming one of Brazil's most important reserves.
The Nukini people have a strong cultural identity and maintain many of their traditions, including dancing the mariri and singing indigenous songs, some composed by themselves and others taught by the elders.
