Native Carvings

For generations the Native people of the Pacific Northwest have used the talking stick during Potlatches and other ceremonial occasions. The talking stick is a symbol of speaking authority and respect for the communications of the Chiefs, Elders, and other witnesses. The talking stick is carved with various animals and family crests and affords the holder the honor and responsibility to speak uninterrupted. Authentic Talking Sticks carved by local First Nations carvers start at $100.00. Be alert for poorly made imitations that are carved offshore and passed off as authentic.

The Eagle is seen as a symbol of both power and prestige as well as a harbinger of peace and friendship. Eagle feathers are still considered sacred and were part of many ceremonies and rituals. Eagle is one of the two main crests of the Haida.
