Just what is Wampum?

We always are learning more at Tuesdays With Kelly talks. This Tuesday,,Nov. 16, at noon, Bob Whiteowl will educate us on the ways of the Cherokees. He actually made a lot of the wampum beading and Native American clothing that is displayed in The Kelly at our current exhibition.

Bob plans to attend in native dress. We are looking forward to seeing if that includes a loincloth. Maybe or maybe not. In any case, it is sure to be informative and entertaining. By the way, he has some lapis wampum for sale if you bring your own wampum to trade

Bring your sack lunch. Open to all. The Kelly provides a beverage and dessert.
