Original 1897 Pomo Wampum Makers Article


I recently purchased this article for my husband on eBay.  He happens to be an expert on wampum, as well as a collector of things related to wampum, so I should have known that he would already have it.  And so this sale.


This is a vintage magazine article entitled, “Pomo Wampum Makers – An Aboriginal Double Standard,” by John W. Hudson, MD that was carefully removed from a copy of  Overland Monthly Magazine published in August 1897. It is in very good to excellent condition, illustrated, 8 pages long and measures approximately 6 x 9 inches.


Illustrations include: 


Bringing back the clam shells
Chipping out the disks
Boring with the Ka Win (this is a rare image of native drilling)
Polishing a Ka Yah
Ka Yah
Ka Yah necklace & belt
Baskets ornamented with Ka Ya & Feathers
Indians gambling
Rate for domestic (U.S.) and Canada shipping is $4.25 including insurance.  I generally ship using First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail and will combine shipments to save on charges.  International shipping rates will be calculated based on destination.  


If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me by email.


Thanks for looking.
