Authentic Native American Indian Drums

These are authentic, stretched hide, ceremonial, Indian drums made by the Tarahumara Indians for use during the Holy Week Festival. The Tarahumara Indians are said to be North America's most primitive people, inhabiting caves and cliff dwellings in northwest Mexico.

From deep in the Sierra Madre Mountains, these Tarahumara Indian drums are used during ceremonies as a call to gather the people. During the festival you can hear the rich sound of the drums drifting throughout the mountain villages for miles.

Fashioned by hand, a piece of native yellow pine is shaved until it is thin enough to be bent into the shape of the drum. Goat skin is stretched over both sides of the drum ring and laced around the edges with real raw hide. It has a small raw hide handle which is ideal for hanging.

The larger the drum the richer the sound when played. Native American hoop drums of the famous and primative Tarahumara Indians are fashioned by hand. All Native American cultures use drums and these Tarahumara hoop drums are perfect for drumming, rustic decor and as a canvas for art projects.

Hoop drums, are held vertically by a rawhide handle on the lacing. Hoop drums, are held vertically by a rawhide handle on the lacing when being played. A drum beater is included with each hoop drum purchase.

Fashioned by hand, using an axe, a piece of native yellow pine is shaved to less than a half inch in thickness in order to be bent into the shape of the drum ring. Real rawhide skin is stretched over both sides of the ring and laced around the edges with raw hide lace. It has a small raw hide handle on the side.
