Native American Talking Stick

Susan Havens is the presenter of this program hosted by the Fort Edward Free Library.  The talking stick is traditionally an ornately carved wand, decorated with feathers and beads and precious stones. When a tribe faces a crisis, they gather in a circle, and one by one pass the stick around. Whoever has the stick must tell their story, whatever story they know that pertains to the subject at hand.   Children will be making their own talking sticks and this program is recommended for children ages six and up with parental guidance due to material used such as: small beads, nylon stretch cording, feathers, and knot tying.  Join us for this educational and fun program 4:30 pm Thursday July 6th at the Canal Street Farmers Market in Fort Edward.
