Shawnee Talking Wands in the news
Reported in The Southern Illinoisan by Brent Stewart:
"The talking stick is a Native American tradition that has recently been rediscovered by Randy Osborn, the executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale.Cool, huh? Says Randy, "It's an educational opportunity, an instrument for conflict resolution, artwork and conservation project all rolled into one."
This simple idea has turned into the Shawnee Talking Wand Project, a unique and creative collaboration with different youth- and nature-oriented groups in the area. The initiative combines whimsical magic wand features with the ceremonial talking stick function and artistic sculptural appeal."
