Made with sea shells, found along the eastern seaboard, wampum was used amongst the native people of Eastern Woodlands. Amongst the Haudenosaunee, wampum made from the Quahog shell would be refined into cylindrical beads and used to create belts and strings, which would be used as mnemonic tools that commemmorate treaties, laws, and other important events, in addition to symbols of legitimacy for leadership.
