Indian myth has it that in ancient times, when the land was barren and the people were starving, the Great Spirit sent forth a woman to save humanity. As she
traveled all over the world, everywhere her right hand touched the soil grew potatoes. And, everywhere her left hand touched grew corn. When the world was rich and fertile, she sat down to rest. When she was rested she arose, there grew tobacco. For thousands of years, tobacco has had a sacred purpose for many tribes It is used for prayer and to show respect, to heal and give spiritual protection. MOST of all the Keeping of promises.
It is the balance of male/female, truth or illusion.
