Seneca cigarettes are a popular brand of native cigarettes manufactured by Grand River Enterprises in Six Nations, Ontario, Canada.[1][2][3][4]Seneca Cigarettes come in a variety of flavors, such as regular, menthol, menthol smooth, lights, ultra lights, non-filters, and a variety of options from kings to 100s, and a 120-size line. The regular flavor box features a distinctive red color, with a logo of a mountain range and a Seneca male with a Gustoweh headdress, which is exemplary of the traditional Seneca Culture.

In August 2010 the Seneca Free Trade association won an injunction allowing them to continue postal deliveries of purchased cigarettes (the March 2010 Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act had previously legislated against such trade).[5]

In May 2013, Seneca also announced and introduced a disposable E-cig line featuring three flavors, regular, menthol, and bold. These e-cigs are estimated to have 300 puffs, and come in packaging similar to the normal cigarette line, except distributed in single size and carton size packs. In June 2013, ESenecacigs.com was the first to announce the distribution of the E-Seneca cigarette.[6]
