Traditional Ceremonial Killer Whale Native Drum

Product Description

Beating a drum with strength, emotion and solidarity in ceremonial dances, this deep spiritual tradition has played an inherent role in the lives of Northwest Coast N,atives for millennia.  Now often displayed as a work of original art, or to be used in musical expression.  Each drum is individually handmade, thus the heart beat and “voice” are uniquely distinctive.  The killer whale symbol on this drum represents loyalty.

Handmade and painted Caribou hide drum by Tlingit artist Nick Vonda.

Drum beater included.

Size 14″ around x 3 1/2″ deep
