Discover the Yawanawà Moy, a potent and mystical Tsunu hapé blend, anchored in the rich traditions of the Amazon. This powerful concoction is crafted from Grandfather Herb of Moy (also known as Moi or Brazilian Mapacho) and the revered ashes of Tsunu. The Grandfather Herb used in this blend hails from the lush surroundings of Sena Madureira, Acre, Brazil. Esteemed for its robust potency, this herb is a variant of Nicotiana rustica, cherished for generations and nurtured from seed to leaf through a lineage of guardianship, ensuring its unique strength and darker essence compared to its cousin, Mapacho.

Infused with warrior spirit and unwavering focus, Yawanawà Moy hapé is a testament to the Yawanawá people's deep connection to their ancestral roots and their understanding of nature's profound energies. Its distinctive flavor and aroma invite a journey of inner strength and clarity, embodying the essence of the warrior's path for those who engage with it.

Administered in mindful measures due to its potent effects, this hapé is designed for those seeking to engage deeply with their spiritual practice. The experience it offers is best embraced within a sacred space, allowing time for reflection and recentering post-application, as its intensity can often extend to the physical, reaching the depths of one's being.

This creation is the brainchild of a dedicated neo-shamanic practitioner from Brazil, who meticulously gathers each component from indigenous sources, blending them in harmony with age-old traditions. Yawanawà Moy hapé stands not just as a product, but as a bridge to the ancient wisdom and spiritual vigor of the Amazonian tribes.

Packed in 10 ml clear bottles containing 7 gr.

About The Tribe

Exploring the Yawanawa Tribe....

Situated along the picturesque Gregoria River, nestled between Peru and Bolivia, and not far from Acre, is the Yawanawa tribe. Their language is part of the diverse Pano linguistic family, native to Western Amazonia. The tribe's economy heavily relies on hunting and fishing, especially during adverse weather conditions when these activities become crucial for their sustenance.

Intertribal Relations and Historical Development
The Yawanawá, known as 'the people of the wild boar', share their lands harmoniously with the neighboring Katukina tribe. Marriages between members of the two tribes, as well as alliances with foreign groups, are common and date back to the colonial era. Initially, these alliances were formed around the exploitation of resources like caoutchouc. However, modern alliances are more focused on sustainable practices that support the cultural and economic stability of these tribes.

Shamanic Beliefs and Practices
Shamanism is deeply rooted in Yawanawa culture. The journey to becoming a shaman is rigorous, involving numerous tasks and trials, such as the daunting task of extracting the heart of an anaconda or facing a swarm of bees. Candidates must adhere to strict dietary restrictions, avoiding meat, fruits, and sweets, and focus solely on traditional medicine for a year. Hallucinogenic plants, including ayahuasca, pepper, datura, Hapé, and Rustica juices, play a significant role in their initiation ceremonies.

The "rare muca" plant is revered as the most sacred among the Yawanawa. Its root is consumed only during special ceremonies, primarily by men embarking on the path to become warriors or healers. These initiation rituals are marked by unique incantations, the use of smudging herbs, and the recitation of prayers.

Hapé Tradition
Historically, the Yawanawa tribe adopted the use of Hapé following the passing of a revered healer. This sacrament is believed to cure ailments of the mind, psyche, and body, facilitating a deeper spiritual connection and enabling astral travel. The Yawanawa's Hapé, known as “Rume”, is a distinctive blend, primarily composed of Txunú tree bark ash and a strong Rustica, similar to mapacho.

The Txunú tree bark, known for its healing properties, is often used in Amazonian tribes, particularly in ayahuasca ceremonies. It enhances the ceremonial experience, easing symptoms like vomiting and aiding in spiritual cleansing. Initially, only male tribe members and the pajé, or medicine man, were permitted to use Hapé. However, this changed with the initiation of Hushahu Yawanawá, the tribe’s first female shaman. Her leadership and expertise in creating Hapé have earned her national recognition and inspired other women to pursue shamanism.

Today, Hushahu is one of the Yawanawá's most esteemed spiritual leaders, known for her exceptional Hapé snuff. Her contributions have not only enriched the tribe's shamanic traditions but have also played a pivotal role in advancing the status of women within the tribe and beyond.

We thank the Yawanawa peoples for sharing their love, knowledge, traditions and wonderful plant allies with us.
