Join us for a look at wampum as one of the original mechanisms of Native legal tradition, and record keeping. We will explore Original Title, Original Jurisdiction, and how wampum is an important legal foundation for a land exchange in Native New England land tenure.

Hartman Deetz is an enrolled member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe.  Deetz has been a long-time advocate for Indigenous rights and the environmental movement.
