Native Americans in the Hamptons!! Turquoise on all white Sat.

This weekend the family had the privilege of attending the annual pow wow held on the Shinnecock Reservation.  This Pow Wow is one of the highlights of the year.  The weekend is full of good times and East cost collectors.  In this post we just want to say thank you to all the friends we have.

For those who do not know, at this Pow Wow “Wampum” is king.  The shell is well received in the North Eastern states because of its history with the shell.  For those who do not know the North Eastern tribes put the shell on the map.  Literally.  As traders came through on routes from one area or another, the shell would be used as currency.

The shell can be found up and down the Atlantic coast, but the largest and best shells are found in the colder waters.  The shell is a clam shell and polishes up so nicely.  Our family loves this stone and has used it in many pieces over the years.  To those who bought wampum jewelry from us this weekend.

If you didn’t get a piece of wampum jewelry from us this year.  Maybe we can show you something you will like next year.  Take care good people

Hi Hi – We thank you.  We hope you all have a good year.
