Listening To The Wampum
Thursday, November 14, 4 p.m.
Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, E.S. Bird Library
Wampum has held critical importance for the Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse) since before the arrival of Europeans until today. Woven into belts and strings, the purple and white shell beads commemorate exchanges, agreements and treaties. We will also reflect on the wider implications of indigenous peoples’ uses of “oral” texts.
