Indigenous Message Stick Ngaribar-dinir by Sherren Gross
Traditionally messages, stories and coming events were sent by carvings made on solid rounded wood (usually longer than a clap sticks) as communications between clans. Ngaribar meaning message and dinir meaning wood or stick named by the Quandamooka women.
Just as the message stick played an important part in communication and protection between Aboriginal groups, today in the classroom the message stick can be a valued item. The person holding the message stick has the right to speak, to be respected and not be interrupted.
