Product Description: This kit gives you everything you need to build your own frame drum. The rawhide round is large enough to fully wrap over the frame. The lace provided is long enough to lace the drum into a four directions handle. You will need to purchase a leather punch, or a leather awl, in order to punch the holes in the rawhide to lace the drum. The suede lace provided creates a comfortable grip on the back of the drum.
Medicines: For those working in a traditional way, the 'medicine quality' of the animal you are working with, may be the most important ingredient in making your choice. For those in the Great Plains, Buffalo was the Great Gift of Spirit. Elk was a great medicine giver throughout much of the mountainous regions of North America. Using the hide, like of all parts of an animal is, in indigenous philosophy, a way of honoring the animal and of completing the circle of life. We do this with great care and respect.
