Snaggin:

I have heard of the drum representing both male and female genders. I have also heard about the drumstick. But I never have heard about them doing "the knock, knock dance" when meeting. Is this a Cree thing?

Every tribe believes differently about the spirit of the drum and its symbolism. It is interesting to learn different beliefs concerning the drum.
