LIMITED EDITION Ancestors Hapé *while supplies last*
The Autumn season is one of transformation and reflection. As the leaves change and flowers wither, we are reminded of the endless circle of life. This is a powerful time to connect deeply with the ancestors, as we remember their spirits and honor those who came before us. As the air becomes crisp and nature begins her winter slumber, the veil between our world and that of our forebears is thinned. This is the perfect time to intertwine the old and the new, and seek profound wisdom from our lineage. Introducing…Ancestors Hapé to support you in this process.
Chief Birací Senior, Nixiwaka Yawanawa, created this hapé to help you connect with the ancestors during this period of reflection. This hapé carries the wisdom of the Elder of the Yawanawa nation, the father of Chief Birací junior, who we introduced last month and who is the current reigning chief of New Hope Village. Made with the traditional Yawanawa recipe of tsunu and tobacco, this hapé will help you to connect to the wisdom of the ancestors, the medicine of our forefathers, and the ones who walked this path before us, paving the way for this new earth that we are inheriting.
We have a very limited quantity of this limited edition hapé. This is a rare & very powerful medicine and we don’t know when and if we will get more in stock. Grab your bottle today!

It is used for deep connection to the spirits, animals and Mother Nature, it is very cleansing and powerfully healing for the body, mind, and soul. Hapé is made with small leaves NOT grown for commercialization or genetically hybridized with high amounts of nicotine, thus it has none of the negative properties that commercial cigarettes have. Instead, it is grown and made in deep reverence for the and for Mother Earth. It is a very powerful plant, that has the power to heal, and when abused and not treated with respect, can cause harm.
