Anyone interested in trading Wampum for Silver???

The French Trader has 'couriered' some of his woven Wampum Bracelets. They are beautiful! Tight weave ...

And from the New England Colonies;
We've been trading for true Quahog Wampum! This is THE historic, traditional Algonquian Wampum the Dutch went CRAZY over. Wampum played a huge role in the history of North America (both pre & post European contact) & remained 'legal tender' into the 19th century. Its value, history, usage, etc. is fascinating. We'll be posting some "Wampum Facts" & 17th-19th century quotes pertaining to Wampum on the board.

We will be adding "wampumeage" soon.
