Additional Details:
Wampum is recognized as one of the oldest mediums of exchange on the North American continent. The Pueblo Indians have been creating wampum for over 900 years, and are true artisans in a craft that had its inception in the days when the great inland sea began its recession from this part of the world. The Santo Domingo Indians are among the last to make true shell bead wampum in the original way. After many hours and days of patient hand work these Indians having made some excellent wampum strings, have come to Trader Fred to trade them and receive in return food, drugs, calico, shoes, building materials or any of the other hundreds of items carried by Trader Fred at the Santo Domingo Indian Trading Post on US 85 halfway between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
