The Purple Shell

I am a traditional Eastern Native (Narragansett) wampum maker. I have been doing this for better then 35 years. I am one of the last traditional wampum bead makers. The bead that the great wampum belts were made from. I have taught two people (man & woman) from two other Nations, which was also their tradition, and I speak/demonstrate when the opportunity is afforded to me.
