Tribal African “staff”

Alas, Google and Wiki have failed me. I was wondering if the long stick many African tribal “priests” (for lack of other word) carry in movies and the like a) had a name other than staff and or b) was an actual tool of the tribal people (I’m sorry I don’t know which tribe specifically) or if it was a Hollywood invention. The best example of one I can think of unfortunately comes from a very bad example, that is the stick thing that Rafki(sp) carries in the movie Lion King.

P.S. Before someone leaps on me about grammar/ spelling. I did spell-check and grammar check, if something slipped by I do apologize, but I did check. < / nervous moment >
