          I guess that depends on what kind of drum you're making. I guess I was just thinking "hand drum" when I posted that.

            I have built both hand and pow-wow drum so wood and rawhide is what was used and strips of hide was used to lace them up. We also did some carving on the pow-wow drum and made an awesome looking drum--but we don't sound good anyways LOL.

            We added some things into it when finished the pow-wow drum!
            he wood was cedar for the pw drum.
            Where's the Pow-wow at????

                Well, I will say that I was pretty surprised at the lack of response as far as the handling of the animal that gives its life in order for that drum to be made..

                Maybe its something that is taken for granted...

                  Well I just went from :) to :(

                  Too much scolding and not enough laughing going on in some of these threads.

                        Best Drum Frame
                        by SouthernDrumSinger
                        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?

                        Thanks

                        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...
