Native American Drum Traditions
The Drum has played a huge role in Native American in their culture and ceremony and has become an icon of the Native American people.
According to indian drum tradition, a drum is much more than rawhide and wood, it is a living being, a precious member of their family.
Different types of hyde can be used in the making of these drums. Elk hide represents stamina, the deer gentleness.
The drum, through use, love, vibrations, and even the oils of the drummers hands that is absorbed into the skin, becomes an extension of the drummer. It is therefore understandable why many native americans do not allow anyone else to use their drum.
