There are all kinds of beadwork ranging from loom work to lazy stitch beadwork. Beadwork was one of the ways that tribes told stories. Woodland Tribes use shells called wampums to make belts or headbands. As Europeans came to the Americas, Native Tribes traded for beads. So, the beadwork is more of modern traditions, but still carry on the legacy of story telling.
