Condolence Cane Reproduction
Condolence Cane ReproductionThis Condolence Cane reproduces one allegedly used during the Six Nations Confederacy Grand Council. The drawings on the handle represented each of the people in attendance and are arranged according to the seating. Whoever held the cane removed the pegs for each speaker. The Six Nations reserve in Canada developed the use of this type of cane in the mid 1900s.
This cane is made of wood and comes with 38 small wood pegs. The crafter did the designs with ink, not carved. The top sports a piece of antler. On each cut end you will see a carved cabuchon-like piece of stained wood. One side features a Native American face, the other side a dog or bear. The crafter did an excellent job with the carvings.
The cane measures 31" long overall. The antler spread measures 8" across.
The crafter created this cane for display. It remains in excellent condition.
