Native american durum hoop

Hello, I'm curious how the native american drum hoop is made traditionally. Since they had no glue, no nails, no metal clamps.

Which materials and how did they do it? Sewn together?

There was glue in the old days. Glues were made by hydrolysis of the collagens from hides, hooves and fish skins, just like they did in the Old World in the days before polyvinyl acetate glue. There were tree pitch based glues and sealants. Mucilage glues from plants were gathered and used.

I can't tell for America but pine pitch (Birkenpech) as glue is known since the stone age in Europe.

Quite a glue, because it is reusable.

Can be used as chewing gum.

Please delete the term shaman from your discussion of Native America. That term has a lot of baggage that only hinders discussion.


I can't directly answer your hoop question. Drum making is a guy thing. I strongly suspect there were a variety of methods used, depending on the culture and craftsman. To this day some pueblo hand drums are made from hollowed log sections. There are only so many ways to skin a cat, with apologies to my princess kitties. I also suspect our ways of making drum frames don't differ too much from ancient Old World techniques.

BTW It's common to assume there was no metal working technology in the pre-Columbian New World. However, gold, silver, and copper alloys were made and worked throughout Mesoamerica, South America and the Northwest coast of North America. Native copper was worked into ornaments and tools and there is some evidence that iron from meteorites was also worked. However, the lack of draft animals to provide transportation and horsepower (literally), dampened both supply and demand. Metals remained largely decorative, religious, and status items.
