Thread Name: info Lumi sticks
Subject: RE: info Lumi sticks
Lummi sticks seem to be used in most of Pacific Oceania, western North America, Asia and Africa. Looks like a lot of teachers are using them to teach rhythm and coordination. I don't think they were used in the schools when I was young.

At one of the New Mexico pueblos recently, I saw a girl playing with three sticks. The object was to keep the third stick moving between the two in her hands, and occasionally tossing it in the air and catching it with the other two (mostly unsuccessfully). An old aboriginal game? No, she had seen a juggler doing it on TV.
