Bullroarer (Bull roarer)

Bullroarer is a musical, communication and warning device which is made of a thin wooden panel with a string to hold it.

Bullroarers have been used in initiation ceremonies and in burials to ward off evil spirits, bad tidings, and especially women and children. Bullroarers are considered secret men's business by some Aboriginal tribal groups, and hence forbidden for women, children, non-initiated men, or outsiders to even hear.
