We bought one in Chile and also one in Mexico... also tourist items..... I'm
not sure how authentic they are, but there may be some historical
significance, you can try these background areas.

that was donated to CAM had a tag describing the technique used to make
them, but did not specify what Native American Nation. Obviously it would be
a culture in the American desserts, but you still would have to look at
cultures in a good part of 2 continents. Anyone with more specific
knowledge. I would like to know also. The rainstick we have was brought back
by a patron from New Mexico, but was obviously a tourist item.
