Alan Ojiig Corbiere: The Underlying Importance of Wampum Belts
Alan Ojiig Corbiere discusses Wampum Belts and their direct relevance to
the relationships between Indigenous peoples and Canada. Wampum Belts
are living symbols of our treaty agreements and the honour of keeping
them, among other things.
This is the big project I’ve been working on since may. My Iroquois wampum belt blanket design! This beast is made of almost 700 small granny squares, and took me over 250 hours to make! I’m not happy with the centre piece but If I make this again, any next ones will have the improved centre piece.
