Talking Stick - Raven (Red & Blue)

Artist: Jim Yelton

Coast Salish First Nation artist Jim Yelton hand carved and hand stained this striking Raven talking stick. This piece is carved from yellow Cedar.

The Talking stick, used in many Indigenous cultures, is an ancient and powerful “communication tool” that ensures a code of conduct of respect during meetings is followed. The person holding the stick, and only that person, is designated as having the right to speak and all others must listen quietly and respectfully.

Ravens are creatures whose curiosity often gets the best of them. Raven is responsible for putting the sun, moon and stars into the sky. Also symbols of prestige and knowledge.

Measurements: 11 1/4" x 1 1/2" x 2"
