    What is a Wampum Belt?

    Wampum belts are belts made from wampum, or shell beads traditionally crafted by the Eastern Woodlands tribes. Wampum are made from purple and white mollusk shells that have been fashioned into barrel shapes. Native Americans have used wampum belts for ceremonial or ornamental use for centuries, and they remain popular to this day.
