Everyone loves a drum beat! Make your own miniature version of a traditional Salish hand drum using deer hide, sinew and a frame, then customize it with design work, feather and beads. The drum is not just a music maker, but a voice for the soul within the music. The drum is more than a musical instrument to those who own and play it, as it is considered to have a life of its own and is regarded as having its own powerful spirit. In the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations’ traditions the drum symbolizes the heartbeat of our people.

*Note: This activity is located in the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre tent.
