      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

                      i think the question was where did it come from not who pooped on it first.

                          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...

                          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?

                          This may seem like an offbeat question, but here goes. I was noticing the other day while sitting in with some guys singing that the drum head had a couple of areas where the hide (buffalo I think) was looking like it had some spidery surface cracks. When I ran my hand over it, I could feel some of...

                          Does anyone here know how to make drum sticks? My mom gave my son a drum stick that was a gift to her from a child she met at a conference for Native Americans on the concerns of the drop out rate among Native American Youth. She gave it to my son who is 2 years old so that way he can practice with...
