Artist’s Statement

Guswenta or better known as the Two Row Wampum belt is a symbolic record of one of the first treaties made between the Ogweho:weh (original people) of Turtle Island and Europeans immigrants. The treaty was made in 1613 between the Dutch and the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). I wanted to create this piece to show that something that may seem meaningless or simple has more meaning than you may think.
