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.  Please check out our Facebook page for TONS of drum colour ideas… https://www.facebook.com/tribalspiritmusic
