Alex Shares his Wampum Belt
Author: Kelly Crawford
A First Nation’s student named Alex is inspired to create a wampum belt from his Lego blocks. Real wampum beads are made from white and purple shells. The colours also have meaning and the designs are used to tell the history of the belt’s creation. The promises mean that First Nations agreed to share the land and they have rights as Nations. The treaty is a living promise that means all people are Treaty People.
