Every hand-painted bamboo talking stick is unique and has its own story!
Talking Sticks are used by the speaker in the circle, and passed along to allow each to speak in turn, all equal in the circle. These Métis talking sticks also talk, in that they tell early stories of Canada (kanata:kon).
This country was born from a mettisage, a weaving of distinct knowledges and worldviews from two culture groups, Indigenous and European. It begins with people from here, joined by early colonists, some of whom became les Voyageurs, Canadiens, Métis… through wars and alliances, kidnapping and marriages in the ‘manière du pays.’
Perfect way to teach indigenous traditions (or good listening habits) to the little ones.
Made by Mike Patterson (Matis) in Ottawa, Ontario.
