The top is for the eagle claw. Beads sound like bells rattling. Fur reminds me of a rabbit. The star stands for peace.

It is cool. It has all the Mi’kmaq colors. It is my favorite. It has the bells, for the church.

The two feathers are for the eagle. It feels good to hold. It is very colorful.

The circle stands for my hoop dancing. Also life goes around in a circle. Colors look cool. Bells mean its time to dance. I will use it at Powwows.

Three feathers stand for my sisters.   Wood is little bit bare to show its natural design.

Black fur for bear hunting. I will take it to Mala for a Talking Circle. I picked a straight stick because its easier to decorate.

The top is for the eagle, black and white. The white is for the white rabbit in winter.

Gray is my favorite color. I like big things. The black is for the panther and the bells are for the church.

I found it in the woods. It is a Talking Stick. The natural patterns remind me of playing hockey with my friends.
