About The Tribe

Discover the powerful and sacred Hapé of Katukina. The Katukina, also known as Atukina, Catuquina, Katokina, Katukena, and Katukino, are indigenous groups from southwestern Brazil that have a deep connection to the use of sacred plants. They believe themselves to be the first tribe to receive Kambo medicine from the frog and possess vast knowledge of the spiritual properties of plants. Experience the wild and powerful spirit of the jungle with their strong and deep Hapé.

The Katukina tribe, originating from five linguistic groups and now comprising three, is a distinctive community residing along the Gregorio and Jutaí Rivers in the Acre and Amazonas regions. Historically named by the government, the Katukina identify themselves through six clans: Varinawa (Sun), Kamanawa (Jaguar), Satanawa (Otter), Waninawa (Peachpalm), Nainawa (Sky), and Numanawa (Dove), each with unique beliefs and linguistic nuances.

Despite suffering severe population decline during the latex industry's exploitation, resulting in forced migrations and loss, the Katukina have since reclaimed their ancestral lands. From a mere 177 individuals in 1977, their numbers have rebounded to 594 by 2010.

Katukina society revolves around family structures, often forming villages with extended families. They practice endogamy, marrying within their Pano linguistic group, and polygamy is common. Gender roles are distinct: men engage in hunting and agriculture, while women focus on domestic tasks. Both genders, however, participate in shared activities like fishing and fruit collecting. Skill demonstration in respective roles is crucial for marriage eligibility.
