Native American Ceremonial Talking Stick
Native Americans use the talking stick in tribal councils, and it can be used at family councils or special occasions. Persons sit in a circle or around a table and the stick is passed, person to person and only the one holding the stick is allowed to talk while holding the stick. Others must listen quietly and respectfully until the stick is passed on. In this way, all can be heard, uninterrupted.
