Description

The Two Row Wampum treaty became the basis for all subsequent treaties between the Haudenosaunee and European settlers but the American and Canadian governments have refused to honour it, resulting in the rise of the ‘Idle No More’ movement and shifting attitudes inside and outside of Iroquois culture.

Discussion to follow.
