I was told by a story teller that a woman had a vision about the drum and she gave it to men. The 8 singers represent the directions. hopefully that answers it. it's what i was told so i am passing it on.

Can't remember the origin, but I once heard this version of the drum's origin.

When women cleaned the hides for rawhide and leather, they would often stretch the hide out on a frame to scrape. As the hide dried, they noticed it made a cool noise, so they figured an instrument could be made from it. The women made a drum and liked it so much they thought it would be a gift worthy of giving away, so they gave it to the men.

I'm no story teller, but that's the Reader's Digest condensed version.

the story i heard is an eagle was flying over a man and the eagle pooped out the drum and it hit the man on the head and the whole camp came running to see if the man was alright and that's why you also hear the loud thump at the beginning of a song, so the whole camp will come see what's happening
