  • Drums across the World

    As Natives, we pay great respect to the drum. In my tribe, I was taught to respect the drum, "take care of it and it will take care of you." Following this advice, the drum has taken me to many different lands in North America and throughout the world.

    While travelling I noticed the drum is a prominent instrument in many other cultures as well. Some examples of some drums I have encountered are an Irish hand drum with a drum stick that has two heads. It was about the size of and sounded like a hand-game drum.

    Another was a Korean ceremonial drum. It was two sided, looked and sounded just like a 49 drum.

    Heres a link to a video with a Mongolian drum. the drum looks just like a round dance drum. YouTube - AllRoadsFilmProject's Channel

    What other kinds of drums are out there?
    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

      Dear WhoMe, you are the best thread starter and the best replyist on here! Honestly, you really are! Any ideal on how to construct a two-headed drum stick. Seriously, I think it would come in handy.

              These are really neat,the Japanese teams are the real deal, the teams of white kids are not right.
              In the words of my Grandmother.." You can do it the wrong way,or you can do it the Japanese way!"

              Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: Rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
              - Solomon

                Powwow drums

                I recently saw an article about a drum making project that changed the lives and attitude of Native youth that were involved.

                I began thinking about the drum and the many changes that have occurred in the evolution of the powwow drum.

                I used to have a drum sculpture made...

                Powwow People,

                For those of you who have made powwow drums, what is the best (and most economical and sturdy) way to make the frame?

                If you look at a lot of the southern drums, they have some type of colorful strip around the rim of the drum. Can you tell me what this is and what its purpose is...I would imagine it is to add additional protection to the hide from wear and tear from the drum sticks...but does anybody know what it...

                Drum Etiquette
                by Black Eagle
                I've heard several different opinios on drums and money. Where I am from, if you liked a song, you threw money on the drum. I've been told by others that putting money on the drum can be interpreted negatively. Whats the general concensus on this?
