Extract from the treaty of the Great Peace of Montréal in 1701 - "Aboriginal peoples concluded alliances and treaties by exchanging wampum, a belt made of shells bearing symbols. In the 17th and 18th centuries, Franco-Amerindian alliances followed the same tradition.The treaty signed by 39 First Nations at the Great Peace of Montréal in 1701 is the finest example."
