Our Kambo sticks have a thick layer of venom on both sides of a paddle shaped stick, or thicker coverage of single sided stick.This should be enough for around 80-100 dots. Burnsticks are currently not included (trying to get some more) but many practitioners will use the end of an incense stick.
Current sticks are fresh from Q2 2020, collected during wet season and come from the Matses (Product pic is old Ticuna style)
About the Matses
The Matsés, also known as the Mayoruna, inhabit the frontier region between Brazil and Peru. Their communities are located along the Javari river basin in the far west of Brazilian Amazonia. In Brazil, they live in the Vale do Javari Indigenous Territory (IT) along with other peoples from the Pano and Katukina language families. Wars undertaken by the Matsés in the past century and the resulting incorporation of captives from other indigenous groups meant they became the largest of the northern Pano peoples.
Skilled hunters, the Matsés trek across large areas during hunting and fishing expeditions and use their knowledge of the forest paths not only to defend their territory but also to manage resources. By alternating their hunting, fishing and swidden sites, the Matsés avoid exhausting the soils and animal populations, despite maintaining relatively fixed communities on the river shores, and simultaneously ensure the occupation and surveillance of their lands.
