Welcome to the World-Wide Web of Wampum. I am Richard D. Hamell, also known as 'the Wampum Bear'. I am actively seeking for information on wampum belts and other wampum items, such as collars, necklace, chokers, strands, etc. If you can provide any information on the items I have on this web site or any others, I would be grateful if you contact me. Also, if you desire information I would happily provide it, if can. You can contact me at the email address below.
