This is a depiction of the Two - Row Wampum belt, the oldest treaty between the Onkwehonwe and Europeans, made in 1613. The two lines of the belt represent two canoes, the Onkwehonwe and Europeans, each steering their own ship, maintaining their own customs and traditions, travelling together down the river, but never interfering with eachother. This is my visual interpretation of the treaty, literally representing the two canoes, in the context of the vast Canadian wilderness
