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 the side of the drum ring.

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 when being played. A drum beater is included with each hoop drum purchase.
