Native America Drum Making – Hawaii

Native America Drum Making - Hawaii FebruaryFeb 05 2022 11:00am - 05:00pm UTCHilo, Hawaii

Spend the day sacredly crafting your own Native American Drum. The drums include beautiful maple wooden drum heads from 16”, 18” or 20″ in diameter and expertly tanned hides deer, elk, moose, buffalo, cow, goat or horse. Horse, bear, moose or buffalo hides are a bit heavier and slightly more fussy in damp climates. That being said, a part of making your own drum is bringing the power of the animal itself through the drum so, take some time to research the qualities and gifts of each animal, then use your intuition to make the right choice for yourself.

Over the course of the day you will participate in each aspect of the sacred ceremony of making a Native American Drum. You’ll learn how to prepare the drum through a smudging and honoring ritual, how to tune into the consciousness of your drum, how to work with the medicine (power) of your drum, how to honor the spirit of the animal who gave its hide for your drum and the ways to use your drum for ceremony and healing.

This is a wonderful process and typically takes 4-5 hours, depending on the size of drum that you choose. It is a process that children are welcome to participate in however they will need the strength and focus of an adult to assist them in lacing the hide around the wooden drum frame.
