The history of the Iroquois Confederacy, its treaties, the deaths of chiefs, and important events in the life of its people are written in patterned beadwork called wampum belts.
They have been used as certificates of authority, as guarantees of promise, and the seal of friendships.
Guided by Tehanetorens, students of the Indian Way School at Akwesesne Mohawk Nation present their bead-for-bead replicas of sacred Iroquois wampum belts.
