These Native American
inspired Talking Sticks/Smudge Fans feature hand-sewn, leather wrapped jaw bone handle that has been adorned with copper, fur, and assorted duck, pheasant and peacock feathers.
Talking Sticks have been used for centuries by Native Americans all across the country. These decorated sticks were used during meetings or storytelling to identify the speaker. Whoever held the talking stick was the only person who could speak at that time, while all others present had to listen silently and respectfully, eyes cast downward so 'listening' became to focus. When one person was finished speaking, they would pass the stick on, so everyone would have a chance to speak, but one at a time. This ensured that everyone’s point of view was heard and considered. What a beautiful way to communicate with loved ones.
Deer Medicine reminds you to move through life and obstacles with grace, to be in touch with your inner child. Deer medicine gives you the ability to change directions quickly. Deer Spirit is gentle. Increases instincts and intuition. When you work with bones, feathers, fur, shells and wood you connect in a deeply spiritual way.
