CK Council looking for input on using cross-cultural talking sticks to establish community identity

The Central Kitsap Community Council invites public input through an online survey on its idea to use cross-cultural talking sticks to establish a unique identity for Central Kitsap that unifies local businesses, community organizations and neighborhood groups, while symbolizing each entity’s individual values and history. The council created a short survey to gather feedback in advance of its next regular meeting, scheduled at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4 at the Best Western Silverdale Beach Hotel, 3073 NW Bucklin Hill Rd.

The CKCC recently hosted a presentation on talking sticks by local artist Lisa Stirrett. These intricately carved speaker’s staffs have been passed around for centuries, symbolizing each member’s authority to speak and enabling all voices to be heard. Lisa and her team developed several prototypes to demonstrate how various groups might design their own talking sticks to locate at entrances to businesses, community facilities, schools, parks and trailheads. The talking sticks would have a common feature, such as a symbol woven into the metal base or a glass piece in the cap.
