Celebrate Native American Heritage Month: Make a Talking Stick!
Monday, November 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until Sunday, November 22, 2020
Make your own Talking Stick while learning about some Native American traditions. Talking sticks are used in gatherings where more than one person speaks. It is a tool that teaches listening and speaking skills, responsibility, and respect. Explore the meanings of some Native American symbols. The type of wood and even colors have meaning. Include some of them in your very own Native American inspired-talking stick.
Learn how to find and choose the items you want to use to personalize your very own talking stick or work together as a group and make a family talking stick!
If you live locally, you can stop by the West Cobb Regional Library to choose a stick. Sticks were harvested from a variety of trees downed by Hurricane Zeta.
Kits that include most of the materials required to complete this project are available for pick up November 16—20 while supplies last!
