On October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus set foot on a small island in the Bahamas where he met local inhabitants. The Arawaks, the Bahamas locals offered him some dried leaves as a symbol of alliance. These leaves were tobacco. These tribes would carry large amounts of tobacco in pouches as a readily accepted trade item and would often smoke it in pipes, either in sacred ceremonies or to seal bargains.
