I recall hearing that the Drum was Feminin and the stick Masculine. I think there is an old Inuet or Athabaskan storie that touches on that topic. I recall being told that in certain instances a person should make a drum with a Cow(female elk) or doe skin for a certain ceremony. I beleive that the Drum is Female. I dont feel that anyone is being called Lesbian! This person just gave his or her opion on that issue of women drumming. But my feeling is that, that is why we always use sticks on the drum to make the ballance..see a person could use there hand to strike it, but we have sticks allways...Thats to keep the ballance between male and female...If a lady played the drum with her hands I would think that would be more of a taboo thing. I am just making a observation.
Take care.
