Wampum Belts were used to mark agreements between peoples, and are of particular significance with regards to treaties and covenants made between Aboriginal peoples and European colonial powers. On Sep 11 Brian Charles (Georgina Island) gave an enthralling presentation to a large group of people, who were fascinated to see the different Wampum belts, to learn their history, and to begin to understand the significance of the symbols and the patterns.
This was a great event, and we were delighted to see such a large crowd in attendance! The event will be repeated, for sure. We will post information here. Check back regularly.
