Slang for cigarettes made by Aboriginals on Canadian Indian reservations.
Native cigarettes have become very popular because natives are allowed to sell them tax free as long as they are on land designated as an Indian reserve. Technically it is illegal for non natives to buy these smokes but many people do so anyway. I am happy that this industry gives the natives a much needed source of income but unfortunately their cigarette brands have a perception of being really low budget and crappy.
The people that smoke them have no pride and they don't give a shit about their image. If I was going to smoke, i'd atleast want to look cool and smoke Marlborough or Camels instead of those welfare putters or sagos. It's just like people who drink bum beer brands like lakeport. They are men without pride or dignity.
Reggie: Yo man do you got any smokes?
Ray: mmm all I’ve got are these lousy natives.
Reggie: Hey I don't care if they're rollies or putters, pass that shit bro.
I tried to sell a bag of Natives at the bus station but it was hard because most people are too high class to smoke them and the one’s that do like them are too broke ass to pay me.
