Thread Name: info Lumi sticks
Subject: RE: info Lumi sticks
I learned lummi sticks in Camp Fire Girls in the 60's, and believed it to come from native indians in Washington- the Lummi tribe-which may be true, but it does not surprise me that so many cultures have similar games and the words/patterns have trqavelled and mixed. If the words that I know (ma koo ay, etc.) are from the Maori, I wonder what the words are from the Lummi tribe?
