Dance Stick & Church Manuscript

Santa Cruz, Ca

Trying to get the native peoples to give up their cultures &
accept the "church" was not always successful for the friars.
Shown in this glass case on the far left is a Dancing Stick.
Sometimes at nights, the Indians would still perform their own
religious rituals, some of which included the use of this Stick.

I was pleased to see this was kept preserved, as it should be.

other sizes: small medium original
