Wampum Weaving Kit (U.S. History)


For the Powhatan people, shell beads were more than just pretty things to string on a necklace.  These beads were a luxury item indicating status because they were so labor-intensive to make.  They were exchanged in marriages and woven into beaded headbands, or used to decorate clothing. Now you can leave your own Powhatan style bracelet.
