First thoughts

While I was looking at the objects behind the glass cases, there was one object that caught my attention. To me it seemed somewhere out of place, until I realized how similar this object was to another of my culture. The label indicated that this was a Tlingit dance staff. I took more time to study it and the more I thought about it, the more curious and excited I got. At first, I didn't care. But it isn't just a stick, or an object, because it means something to them. And it's just as important as an eel stick or any other object because every object has a unique history.
