Warriors would gain status in their tribe by touching their enemy instead of killing them. This was known as counting coup. This is one style of staff used for such an endeavor.
Possession markers were used by most Indian families to identify firewood just gathered and ready to be moved. A possession marker was put in the ground beside the wood, so that anyone coming by knew who had gathered it. A possession marker put beside a travois just unloaded was the same as a locked door; no one would bother the things staked on the ground and all knew who owned them. The only time possession markers weren't needed was on a hunt, when a man's personally marked arrows identified the animals he had killed. When his wife came out to skin the animal, her husband's arrows pointed out to her which animal she was to work on.
