Kewita is a stick made of an offshoot of the Dodampana tree.
Used to drive bovines during ploughing and to signal which direction the bovine should move.
The Dodampana stick does not cause harm, injury or pain to the working animal. Farmers would use the kewita strictly to signal direction and lashing at the animals is forbidden. The length of the kewita should normally reach the bust of the person using it.
Kewita is also used to direct the bullocks tied to bullock carts
