Question Can women use the drum

I had originally posted in the southern singing when I realised that I posted in the wrong category. This is still all new to me.

I want to know if women can use the drum and I would like to know where I could find teachers I could learn from.

I've been doing what I can to learn about my cultural identity with any thing I can grab on to.

I have been away from the rez since the age 9 and haven't had the teachings from relatives.
My family is ojibwe and there are drummers in the family line on my mothers side. I myself play a snare drum for a scottish band, have been since I was twelve. I have been a dancer since childhood.

I would welcome any info in this area.
