The Two Row Wampum (first made between the Haudenosaunee and the Dutch 400 years ago) as well as the United Nation Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples were celebrated in The Hague, Netherlands on September 13th. Haudenosaunee leaders, Oren Lyons, Joe Deom and Kenneth Deer, were welcomed by the Alifuru people, indigenous people from what is now Indonesia, with a red cloth around their shoulders and a traditional handshake demonstrating that they support each other as brothers in their efforts to protect Mother Earth.
