Our headsinger has two drums that he purchased and we consider to be his.

This summer at a dance in Missouri, Kickapoo Rice sang with us. He said that he had a good time and that he was impressed with the way we conducted ourselves and wanted to make us a drum. Kickapoo came up and sung with us in Illinois abour six weeks later and gave us a drum. That's the one that we consider the group drum. Kickapoo also made one of our headsingers drums.

When I lived in Milwaukee my group at the time purchased a drum off of Ben Bearskin. One of the guys from The Milwaukee Bucks introduced us to Ben. He made the core out of cedar, with a cow hide and a horse hide cover. Ben said he likes a different thickness of skin so you can choose which side sounds better based on weather conditions.
