Tobacco was widely diffused among all of the indigenous people of the islands of the Caribbean. Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus is generally credited with the introduction of tobacco to Europe. During his 1492 journey, three of his crewmen Rodrigo de Jerez, Hector Fuentes and Luis de Torres, are said to have encountered tobacco for the first time on the island of Hispaniola, (present day Haiti and the Dominican Republic), when natives presented them with dry leaves that spread a peculiar fragrance. His sailors reported that the Taínos on the island of Cuba smoked a primitive form of cigar, with twisted, dried tobacco leaves rolled in other leaves such as palm or plantain.
