One of the sacred staffs of the Apache people. The marchers have placed great significance in not allowing the staves to enter a car, but to be carried the entire journey to Oak Flat without modern conveniences. For the marchers, the journey by foot is part of the experience. Wendsler Nosie Sr. speaks of the importance of the marching to Oak Flat: "You can't just go to a holy site and expect blessings to be given to you... As we're going these 44, or 45 miles, we're being greeted by the environment... You have to have that communication with the Creator, and that's an important concept for us."
