Native American Made Ceremonial Talking Stick with Crystal
The talking stick is used as a means for just and impartial hearing. Primarily used in council circles, the stick would designate who had the right to speak (whoever holds the stick speaks and all others listen). When the stick is passed to the next person, that person must repeat the essence of what the previous speaker said before speaking. The stick carries with it respect for free speech and the practice of true conversation. The words that are spoken should come from the heart and be soft and warm (fur) and 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 Certificate of Authenticity included.
