Five Navajo Bull Roarers. Navajo, 19th/20th C. The Navajo call it the 'groaning stick' (tsin di'ni) and use it to drive away evil or drive out illness. Made from pine wood that has been struck by lightning, covered with yucca pitch, and attached to a cord made from bighorn or buckskin. During Navajo sacred ceremonies, the medicine man uses the bull roarer to slice through the air, creating an opening that allows the Yei B'Chei (diety) to enter the physical world. On display stand. [JGLO8200/5] (WK)
