The Guswenta Wampum Belt, commonly referred to as the Two Row Wampum, is a mutual treaty agreement created in 1613 between the Haudenosaunee people and the Dutch settlers. The Belt ensures both parties conduct themselves in all proceedings as equals, contemporaries, each traveling in their own canoe without interrupting the other’s path.
Programmed by Falen Johnson and Cole Alvis, the Guswenta Gathering brings Indigenous artists to Soulpepper with presentations of theatre, dance, music and art. Programming will highlight art that speaks to the lands and waterways where The Young Centre for the Performing Arts sits.
