Acrylic paints this is a modern style drum. To make a drum is a very long process. First I have to find a hunter who harvests the deer/elk for its meat in a respectful way. Then I flesh the hide and take it to the river where I soak it until the hair falls off. Next I stretch the hide and pray with it. Then I cut the rawhide heads and soak them and the rawhide lace. Then I tie the drums and hang them in trees to dry. Each drum is a living guest in your home. When they get to hot they tighten and can crack, if they get to cold they soften and wont play. These drums I make have a spirit. They should be treated as a guest in your home. Place in an area where they will be comfortable, do not place them face down (disrespectful) they are not to be hung on the wall as the energy will drain out (walls are for decorations) I was taught that the drum is a part of all cultures around the world. When we come into this world we have our drum and our flute and when we leave this world we take our drum and our flute (meaning voice and heartbeat).
