Talking Stick Workshop

Students participated in a Talking Stick Workshop with Dorothy Larkman where they not only learned about the purpose of the talking stick but also about the Anishinaabe culture and teachings.  “The Talking Stick, used in many Indigenous cultures, is an ancient and powerful “communication tool” that ensures a code of conduct of respect during meetings is followed. The person holding the stick, and only that person, is designated as having the right to speak and all others must listen quietly and respectfully” (https://www.ictinc.ca/blog/first-nation-talking-stick-protocol).  This workshop was held specifically for students to learn how to utilize the talking stick in their work as professionals.
