drums

Drums were an integral part of the many events, ceremonies and celebrations that made up life on the Plains. Music pleased Wakan Tanka (the Great Mystery) and brought beneficial attention to the player's causes and situation. The pulsing drum - often considered to represent the heartbeat of the world - accompanied prayers for the sick to be made well, the recitation of the warrior's coups and, of course, the dancing and songs that enriched the spiritual life of the community.

Drums are still a very important part of Native American gatherings today.
