Welcome to the Bear's Den

The World of Wampum

Welcome to the exhibition of traditional, non-traditional wampum belts and other wampum objects. The wampum belts displayed herein are reproductions of original wampum belts which were that made by various Native American cultures. The replicas are either full-size or ‘miniaturized’ belts. The belt lengths were determined by bead count of the original belts. In duplication some belts the bead number is a best ‘guess’ given the fact the count was determined by the examination of photographs, drawings, and/or, in a few cases, paintings. Because of the modern simulated wampum beads used vary from the original wampum bead size, the replica belts are longer and a little wider than the authentic wampum belts.

The web site is separated into three main sections: Wampum Belt Production, Wampum Store, The Wampum Library, Wampum Belt Archives, Native American Events, and Photograph Gallery. Links to these topics are provided by clicking on the appropriate Wampum House or Back Button.
