Gathering Place Message StickRegular price $75.00
Many tribes and languages existed prior to settlement, many borders and homelands. Symbols were etched or burned into pieces of wood to convey messages and handed to the senior leaders from visiting clans. Symbols were recognised throughout tribes and were a common language.
