The Yecuana of Venezuela believed that women were formed from clay that came to life when tobacco smoke passed over its surface.  There are many carved monuments depicted Mayan deities as smokers. The Iroquois of New York used tobacco as a dental remedy because it anesthetized the pain of tooth decay.  Certainly, after dinner, smoking tobacco was a common practice among the upper Aztec classes.
