Creating your own medicine drum is a truly in-depth experience that can travel with you as a sacred object that beats through your entire life. For those who have not played a medicine drum, with an introduction to breathing / beating meditation, and in making it yourself you will find it will play itself.
Practically, there are options to make a 14” or 18” drum from either goat, or kangaroo or deer hide.
I either make the hoops myself with sustainably harvested hoop pine or get them made by a traditional manufacturer using a single piece of sustainable freshly cut timber. Both types of hoops provide a lightweight strong drum and you get to brand them with sacred geometry.
I acknowledge the Native American and other traditional creators of this style of drum and the indigenous people of this land. I have been through big journey in being able to offer drum-making to others which will assist in guiding fellow makers on a beautiful and sacred journey.
