The talking stick is a tool families can use to promote speaking and listening, share emotions without judgment, and learn from the experiences of others. Elders are always encouraged to speak first and everyone should listen with respect, compassion, and support. We only speak if we have the talking stick in hand! When our turn comes, it is important to speak fairly and with your heart.
