Wampanoag Weave Their Story Through the Wampum Belt Project

 

After centuries of feeling silenced, erased and “hidden in plain sight,” the Wampanoag Tribe will tell its own story through a traditional form of art.

The Wampum Belt Project was a collaboration involving more than 100 tribal members in different Wampanoag nations. The process of hand-crafting the 10mm beads was led by Aquinnah Wampanoag Artist Jason Widdiss. Jason along with Aquinnah Wampanoag Tracey Adams and Mashpee Wampanoag Hartman Deetz crafted nearly 10,000 beads for the belt. The Weaving of the belt was led by tribal member Julia Marden with Aquinnah Wampanoag Linda Coombs and Mashpee Wampanoag Paula Peters doing the research and development of the project.

The Wampum Belt Project goes beyond telling the story of the Wampanoag Tribe in its voice. Tribal members hope it will also lead to rediscovery of an important tribal artifact.
