Cedar Wood
The Cedar tree is a powerful healing tree, and the flutes and drums constructed from the Cedar carry a superior resonance and healing energy. The Natives of the Northwest smudged with Cedar, used Cedar tea for healing and carved their totems and canoes from this sacred wood. Many songs were written about the healing energies of Cedar, and when a tree was taken, all parts of it were used for the healing and survival of the People.

Meanings of the Hides Used in Drums

Elk Hide is used on this Medicine Durm.
For a Spirtitual Journey
When we are working in the West on the Medicine Wheel – the Water, emotions, shadow self – then Elk Medicine gives us the stamina and endurance to get through the edges, from the known to the unknown. As we go through our fears, we expand ourselves and add more trust to our circle. Trust is the lubricant that helps us take the “leap of faith” that leads us to unity with spirit and to a reclaiming of our original grace.
Elk is powerful medicine for healing child abuse and addictive patterns. The Elk will bring up our unresolved grief and help purify and cleanse us through crying and grieving our sweet tears. The vibration of Elk opens the third Chakra, the belly, where we carry our fears and undigested values that interfere with our pure will. The Elk is a communal animal, hanging out with members of the same sex except during mating season.

Native American drums are the oldest and most important instrument to the native culture. Not only does the sound of the "Native American Style" rawhide drum move our spirit by the calming vibrations it sets off, but the beat is in tune with the earth's natural frequency. The steady strong sound of hitting the drum is in sync with the rhythm of the heartbeat in the center of this world.

Each rawhide drum is individually handmade.

The drum has played an inherent role in the lives of Native Americans for centuries. Prior to battle, the beat of the drum aroused a sense of strength and solidarity. In gatherings and celebrations, it created a sense of social and spiritual harmony. Native Americans continue to express their deep spiritual awareness through ceremonial dances accompanied by the resonant pulsing of the drum.
