| ||Wampum Belt|
UMaine Wabanaki Studies, Text
Wampum belts consist of rows of beads woven together. Belts were made using the techniques of both hand-held and loom-woven beadwork, often on a simple loom made from a curved stick resembling an archer's bow. Weaving traditionally involves stringing the beads onto twisted plant fibers, and securing them to animal sinew or leather thong warp.
