This an 18" Cottonwood Rainstick decorated by Native American Indians from either the Navajo and Cherokee Tribes. The included informational sheet contains information on the individual who decorated it along with their registered Tribe number. The inside of the rainsticks are filled with seeds to create a flowing rain sound.
The Cottonwood Tree was always a welcome sight. They could be seen for many miles, sometimes almost a full days journey away. The Cottonwood Tree almost cried out "..here I am; I have food, water, and cool shade from the hot summer sun." Sometimes the travelers would spend several days at the water hole resting and repairing their wagons. Let the soft whitish color remind you how tough it used to be getting from here to there in wagons.
Each Rainstick will be decorated with a variety of Petroglyph symbols. When used, the symbols have the following meaning:
Success & Prosperity has a painted Lizard the symbol of "planning ahead", carved petroglyphs that show your choice of Good Luck Symbols which could be Kokopelli, Medicine Man, Snake Dancer or Chief.
Strength & Vistory has a painted Bear Paw Symbol of "Gentle Strength" and Petroglyphs carving of Hunters.
