I hope this helps.
You stated it right WhoMe. I was just going to say; being from the Northwest that in my tribe the women were traditionally the ones who "ran" everything. It is not uncommon to have women drums or mixed family drums. Another thing I'd like to say on this subject is when drums travel to other areas; they need to keep an open mind as to the areas traditions and beliefs, to avoid stepping on toes!
