Product Description

This downloadable version of my book , with added activities is a great tool for teachers and students alike. You will become very comfortable with many aspects of wampum. My TPT offering is unique.

As an award winning author I am very pleased to be able to present my book, WAMPUM; The Story of Shaylyn the Clam on the TPT forum and in this format.

The story is very simple and easy to understand with vivid illustrations by Métis artist Jennifer Bettio and is a wonderful introduction to wampum; from whence it came, how it was made and how it was used.

The patterns on the wampum belts/strings were visual reminders of the ‘words’ spoken into each making them living objects.

Wampum belts are scattered throughout the world in many collections both private and public. Many wampum belts are not able to be read anymore. Their meanings are lost in large part due to residential schools and the disruption of the transfer of oral history.

I have personally seen many original wampum belts. I have been there when repatriated wampum were in the presence of elders. I respectfully watched as the elders viewed them and gently rubbed their hands on them. I saw great sadness in their eyes as they acknowledged the fact that their ancestor’s words were held within the wampum but now they didn’t know how to extract those words.

Over 723 schools use a ‘guide’ that I co-authored with Raymond R. Skye and over 14,000 copies of my books have been sold and used by educators and the general public. Please refer to my web; www.realpeopleshistory.com

It is well worth reading The Anishinabek News article about my book; Wampum http://anishinabeknews.ca/2016/10/20/shaylyn-the-clam-helps-children-learn-about-wampum/
