Smoothed sticks of adler wood. Beveled at ends. "Sticks used in Beaver dance. A ring of dancers holds a circle of sticks by gripping them end to end to form a cordon of sticks inside dancing ring during first portion of dance. Then the dancers change to outside of ring of sticks. In second portion of dance two dancers carry the sticks as clubs to strike the image of a beaver in imitation of killing beaver."
