• Super soft, this Treaty of Canandaigua Scarf is based off the original design on the treaty of 1794.
  • The One Dish Mask is based off of the One Dish/One Spoon wampum belt that recorded an agreement of peaceful and neutral hunting grounds north of Lake Ontario between the Iroquois and Ojibwa in the late 1600’s. The center image represents a dish with a beaver tail in it. Beaver tails were considered a delicacy to Native people. The principle behind the one is that it signifies that what belongs to one, will also belong to all people. The efforts of having open and peaceful hunting grounds were necessary in the survival of the people. The principle behind the One Dish/One Spoon could be interpreted to have been demonstrated by the Peacemaker at the unification of the Five Nations. The Peacemaker passed a bowl of beaver tail around to the chiefs. These fifty chiefs took only a small portion of the bowls contents due to the understanding that others needed to get their share from the bowl. One spoon is used to eat from the bowl to align the idea of sharing with one another. The spoon specifically is used when discussing this principle due to a spoon being far less lethal than a knife. Again, the principles of peace. In today’s time, the idea of equal sharing and equal respect among Native people is one that continues to be strengthened. This t-shirt is a reminder to Natives and non-Natives alike that we should take no more than what we need, and to always be mindful for others.
  • The Two Row Wampum Scarf is based on the design of the The Two Row Wampum belt which recorded an agreement between the Hodinöhsö:ni’ and Dutch in 1613. The purple rows running the length of a wampum belt represent the ways of the Hodinöhsö:ni’ and their way of life, laws, and the other purple row represents the non-natives and their ways. It was agreed that each will travel down the river of life side by side. Neither will attempt to steer the other’s vessel or interfere in their matters. The Hodinöhsö:ni’ and the Dutch agreed on three principles to make this treaty last. The first was friendship; the Hodinöhsö:ni’ and their non-native brothers would live in friendship. The second principle is peace; there will be peace between the two peoples. The final principle is forever, this will be everlasting. The Dutch recorded this agreement on paper with three silver chains. They chose not to use iron chains because iron rusts and over time will break. Silver, however, can be polished and renewed. Both sides agreed to call this the Silver Covenant Chain of Friendship. After the Dutch turned their colony over to the British, the British honored the stipulations of the belt and the principles therein. The Hodinöhsö:ni’ view the Two Row Wampum as a living treaty; and affirm that this agreement established the Hodinöhsö:ni’ the right to live in peace and that each nation will respect the ways of the other.

The Onondaga were named as The Firekeepers. This ever-growing Tree Belt symbolizes the infinite existence of The Hodinöhsö:ni’ (Iroquois) Confederacy.
