Powwow Drums

Making a Powwow drum is a great honour and a serious responsibility.  The drum is sacred, and when the voices of our ancestors are brought back to us through the drum we thank the singers who are healing our people and Mother Earth.  We build our drums using 1 1/4” thick sectioned solid eastern white cedar.  Our cedar frames are very strong and guaranteed for life. Generally, we work with moose or steer hide as it is very thick and maintains its sound well no matter the level of humidity.  All of our drums have a really big sound.
The Powwow drums in these pictures are just ideas/examples of the drums you can order. We enjoy building custom drums (no extra charge btw). You can choose natural hide or dyed (any colour) and also the design of the colours on the cedar frame.
COVID-19  Update:  Our small family run business is still up and running. Looking for supplies during your time of social distancing?  We’re still shipping daily!  New specials coming to help us all ride this out!

  • Mini Powwow Drums

    289$ US347$ US

    Introducing our new Tribal Spirit Mini Powwow Drums.  The drums are designed after the style of our powwow drums but have a wide range of uses.  Initially this drum was requested by families who had very young singers.  Sized 13″ or 16″ in diameter and 12″ deep a youngster can sit and play along with the songs.  But this drum is also very versatile, great for playing with two hands, we could also see it as part of a drum kit.  Perfect Children’s Drum (sticks are extra) check our fluffy hand drums sticks perfect for these drums.
