Ancestral lore considers Tobacco to be the first of four Sacred Medicines, given to Native mankind to establish communication with the spirit world. Tobacco allows us to communicate directly with the Great Spirit and allows helpful spirits to come and offer aid.
Unlike commercial tobacco, which has been heavily altered and stripped of its healing properties- consequently leading many consumers into addiction and ill health- this ceremonial tobacco is a guardian plant used in offering for ritual and daily requests. Native lore declares that nothing can be taken without something being given in return, therefore the act of giving (offering) tobacco allows assistance to be taken from the spirits, without the giving of that which isn’t desired to be given in return for the taking of that assistance.
In addition to tobacco being used as an offering, ceremonial tobacco is also used in various consumable forms known as Hapé and Ambil, one or both of which are consumed in conjunction with the sacred coca leaf during Yage ceremonies to allow participants clear and direct communication with the spirits. In this setting, tobacco use is considered safe and sacred by Natives, as opposed to the non-ceremonial, habitual consumption of tobacco, for the sake of nicotine consumption, which often leads to health complications.
