Wampum Belts with Jamie Maracle

September 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Wampum belts are traditional teaching tools that record Rotinonshon:ni history and knowledge. Traditions state that they have been used for more than 2,000 years. Each of the dozens of belts have their own teachings and stories.
Come hear about the origins of the belts, how the belts are made, and the teachings that they offer. This discussion will touch on the history of the Rotinononshon:ni as well.
Jamie Maracle has been making Wampum belts for at least 25 years and has been presenting about them for almost as long. He is from Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory and has travelled to Six Nations of the Grand River, Akwesasne, Kanewake, Onondaga and more to learn the traditions of the Wampum belts and other Rotinonshon:ni traditions
Admission is free, though donations to the Kenhte:ke Seed Sanctuary and Learning Centre are welcome.
Space is limited. Register by contacting museums@pecounty.on.ca.
