THA 4th Graders Learn About Iroquois
Temple Hill Academy’s fourth grade scholars have been learning about the Haudenosaunee, also known as the Iroquois. They synthesized information from several sources to identify the core beliefs, peace, love, and respect for nature, of these native peoples. The students then created wampum belts, a guide used to narrate Haudenosaunee history, traditions, and laws. These beautiful belts are full of symbolism representing the Iroquois. The deep purple color of the background represents the Iroquois flag. The students also used traditional materials of beads, shells, and feathers to assemble their wampum belts.
