Word of the Day
- A belt or girdle made of wampum by the Indians of the North Atlantic region, the purple and white beads being generally so arranged as to form designs.
These belts were exhibited at times when important tribal events took place and thus became mnemonic records of the events.

- Edgar Quinet (1803 - 1875)
