The Two Row Wampum
The Two Row Wampum is considered to be the grandfather of all of the treaties between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy (also known as the Iroquois League or Five Nations (The Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca Nations) and European Settlers. The agreement took place between the Haudenosaunee and the Dutch Settler government, who were stationed in what is now upstate New York, in 1613.
