Upholding ancient traditions
Tobacco has long been used among American's, with some cultivation sites in Mexico dating back to 1400–1000 BC. Many Native American tribes have traditionally grown and used tobacco. Eastern North American tribes historically carried tobacco in pouches, as a readily accepted trade item, as well as smoking it, both socially and ceremonially, such as to seal a peace treaty or trade agreement. In some population's, tobacco is seen as a gift from the Creator, with the ceremonial tobacco smoke carrying one's thoughts and prayers to the Creator
The original inhabitants of Jamaica are believed to be the Arawak's, also called Tainos. They came from South America 2,500 years ago and named the island Xaymaca, which meant ““land of wood and water”. The Arawak's were a mild and simple people by nature. Physically, they were light brown in color, short and well-shaped with coarse, black hair. Their faces were broad and their noses flat. Tobacco was grown on a large scale as smoking was their most popular pastime a tradition that is still deeply rooted in our culture today. History tells us that the Caribbean countries are actually very old volcanoes that produced island's by continued eruptions thousands of years ago. because of this volcanic soil, Jamaica is able to produce a very rich and flavorful tobacco.
