Drinking Smoke

This chapter studies the early trading of tobacco in New Guinea. In particular, it presents assorted accounts by Europeans which provide a series of “first dates” when tobacco was reported from different locations. Instances where people are recorded not to possess or not to be familiar with tobacco are found overwhelmingly in the eastern part of New Guinea and on the islands still farther to the east. In many of these places it is clear that tobacco was introduced by European traders in the late nineteenth or even the early twentieth century. The chapter further provides evidence for the nineteenth-century introduction of tobacco by Europeans in Fiji, New Caledonia, the Loyalty Islands, the Isle of Pines, Vanuatu, and the Solomon Islands.

Keywords:   New Guinea, New Caledonia, Loyalty Islands, Isle of Pines, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands
