Join Derrick Whiteskycloud of the Metis community in a ceremonial and educational drum making workshop at the Museum of Vancouver.
RELATED: MINE Performance: The Cultch 2020
This hands-on workshop teaches participants how to make a traditional First Nations drum.
Raw hide from elk skin and cedar tree wood will be combined to connect you with the natural elements of this instrument building process.
Derrick will complete the instructional build process. He’ll do that with a ceremonial blessing and perform traditional Metis and Coast Salish songs.
Each participant will leave with their own traditional 16” drum and drum beater.
Although participatory, please note frames will be pre-cut and no carving is involved. No previous drum making experience is necessary.
So, don’t miss it when it all happens next month!
