For centuries, Europeans have run the North American tobacco trade. Today, the First Nations' people are taking it back. SMOKE TRADERS tells the story of the contraband tobacco trade and its effects on individual lives and communities from a Native perspective. Is the tobacco trade a road to independence or criminality for Native people?
