Traditional Talking Stick

Friday, November 19th, 4:00 PM – 4:45 PM

The talking stick is a tool used in many Native American traditions. It is passed from person to person as they speak, and only the person who has the stick may speak.  As we approach Thanksgiving, maybe you would like to bring a traditional talking stick to your family gathering? Come to the Refuge and create your very own. A program for adults, and for kids 8 and older (must be accompanied by an adult). $20 per person.
