Various Sticks Audio about Large Elder's Stick Read Transcript

Indigenous people have common environmental views that form the foundation of their world view. The identity of Apache people as a free people was heavily influenced by the harsh and challenging locations in which they chose to live. Highly developed problem solving abilities were required to maintain a nurturing and meaningful culture. The historical responsibility of the Apache tribal elders went far beyond what is expected of the western elderly. This responsibility is being lost to westernization. These (fighting) sticks serve as a reminder to our elderly that their fundamental role within the tribe is continual and their shared experience essential to a continued cultural well-being.
