The Medicine Drum: Make or Buy?

I am often asked “is it better to make my own Medicine Drum, or just buy one?”

As many of you know, I have been holding medicine drum making ceremonies for many years now, teaching the way of my lineage.

I have learned that every person is different in this world. Some people prefer to make their own Drum and others prefer to buy. There is no right or wrong way with how you do things.
