talking stick

First Nations people of the Pacific Northwest created the talking stick as both a symbol of a leader's authority and as an instrument of democracy, passing around a carved staff in a group to ensure that each person holding the staff had their chance to be heard.

I see the microphone as a kind of talking stick, allowing  people to record their ideas & personal stories for others to hear.
