i do not have the information you are looking for, although
i too am interested in talking sticks. in fact i bought one,
about 5 feet tall, in vancouver in november. contemporary
ones are available for sale there, and they seem to have
a long tradition among the tribes of the northwest coast.
i even saw a brief reference to them as being the precursors
of totem poles. anyway, basically i am writing to see if
you have received any other information about them. i would
appreciate knowing about it. i was quite surprised myself
at the paucity of information about these objects. thank
you. sincerely, philip wexler
