  • Drum Making

    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 is?

    Suthern,

    It's colored duct tape.

    The edge of the drum receives the most wear from drum sticks. So to extend the life of a drum, duct tape is applied around the outer edges.
    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

        Powwow drums
        by WhoMe
        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...

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

        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.

        by AZSundevil
        Ok... I know this thread probably belongs in another area but I thought there might be some drum makers/ singers who could give me some advice.
