Medium Sized Round Rawhide
Covered Wood Tarahumara Powwow Drum
This powwow drum is a beautiful piece of traditionally hand made Tarahumaran
functional art. The skin on this drum was made from stretched genuine
rawhide leather. The frame of the drum is of 3" wide logs for natural
character. The skin has been attached to the frame with rawhide straps.
This is a great piece for display or powwow use. The rawhide skin can
be colorfully hand painted to serve as a decoration or end table. This
drum is approximately 12" wide and 18" tall. For tuning and
tightening use water and a heat lamp.
The drum is a circle. It symbolizes the inseparable unity of the past,
present and future. The unity is a circle that binds all people.
Although ceremonies are infinitely varied in detail, they typically involve
dancing to the chanting of sacred songs, the shaking of rattles, and blowing
of whistles, and the hypnotic rhythms of the drums. Black Elk once explained
the drum's symbolic importance: "Its round form represents the universe,
and its steady strong beat is the pulse, the heart, throbbing at the center
of the universe. As the voice of Wakan Tanka, it stirs and helps us to
understand the mystery and the power of things.
