Native American Made Talking Stick


The traditional Native way to keep order and respect during conversations to keep communication time fair for all ages. Beautifully made and decorated with beads, feathers, and fur. Whomever holds the talking stick may speak without interruption.  As it is passed from person to person ideas and opinions are shared and respected. The talking stick begins with the eldest then around by descending age. Even the smallest voice is heard.

The talking stick is also a wonderful teaching tool when sharing stories with children


Sticks are generously sized at 13″ plus the fur tops and feather tails & fringe adding app. another 8-10″.  Assorted bead colors and we will choose one for you.  If you have a color preference put it in the Notes section at checkout and we may have one. 🙂  **nationwide shipping available-choose out of town charge at checkout

The components meaning:  words that are spoken should come from the heart, soft and warm (fur)- courageous and wise (feather). The beads are reminders that the Great Spirit hears the message of the heart as well as the spoken word. Legend card and Navajo Artist, Certificate of Authenticity included.  **fur, feathers, and skins are humanely gathered.

Note-A wonderful teaching tool when sharing stories and talking with children.  I have been told it is especially helpful for those autistic and mentally challenged children while also teaching them a bit of Native culture.  Native children learn early that each opinion deserves to be heard by everyone in the room at their time and not before, and this is carried through to their adulthood.  Such a simple premise yet a wonderful practice.

We can all learn much from Native peoples, simple ways of living in respect to each other and the environment.
