Drinking Smoke

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter shows that in the same way the Dutch and the English smoked tobacco in pipes while the Spaniards and the Portuguese took its pleasures in the form of cigars or cheroots, a similar divide occurred as tobacco spread across New Guinea. Throughout most of northern New Guinea, tobacco leaves dried over an open fire were crumbled and then rolled up in a leaf wrapper into a “cigarette,” which was tied with a fiber strip to hold it together. By contrast, in most of southern and British New Guinea a bamboo tube is used in smoking. The bamboo was open at one end and closed at the other by a node. Toward the distal end a small hole was drilled, into which a “cigarette” was inserted.

Keywords:   tobacco, cigars, cheroots, New Guinea, bamboo tube, cigarette
