Historians and anthropologists of Native America have long recognized--even if we have not always fully understood--the significance of wampum, especially in intercultural diplomacy. Reading Wampum offers another approach, focusing on the works of contemporary Haudenosaunee authors, artists, and film makers to demonstrate the enduring relevance of wampum traditions and teachings.--Colin G. Calloway, John Kimball Jr. 1943 Professor of History and Professor of Native American Studies, Dartmouth College
Reading the Wampum, and the work of Stevens, Gansworth, Niro and Deer, deserves the careful attention of literary, media, rhetoric, post-colonial and theory scholars around the world.--Birgit Brander Rasmussen "Transmotion "
