Wampum Belt Talk presented by Brian Charles

Wampum Belts are visual records of history. They are records of relationships and treaties
between the Indigenous people of the Eastern Woodlands, as well the relationships between
Indigenous peoples and Settler Societies. Wampum Belts are used in ceremony, teachings and
are reminders of our shared laws and values in relation to governance and land stewardship.
