Brian Charles is an off-reserve Band member of the Chippewas of Georgina Island and has worked collaboratively with a small group of knowledge keepers to research and assemble a physical repository of wampum belts connected to Ojibwa history. The presentation "Wampum Belts Woven Through Anishinabbe Hisroty" will illuminate how wampum was used to record not only relationships and treaties between the First Peoples of the Eastern Woodland, but also with settler societies in Canada.
