The Two Row Wampum - excerpt by John Kane

The Two Row Wampum is simply about respect.

 The Two Row Wampum with its magnificently simple design depicts two rows of purple wampum set against a background of white.

 The two rows are equal and run side by side with each other. First Nations represent one of those rows. The other is for any and all that we share a mutual respect. The key is respecting our relations as equals and respecting that while we all have our own path; we are still connected.

 When the Two Row is described as two vessels on the river of life it is the river that connects us. The distinctions of the separate and equal rows show a respect for the distinct paths our vessels travel.

 It is said that everything that is ours must stay in our canoe while everything that is theirs must stay in their ship. The two must learn to travel together in respect and harmony, valuing each other’s tradition and culture.
