"The Sioux are a plains tribe. This drum was part of a kit called 'Black Elk drum.' Black Elk was a famous Sioux Native American who was a medicine man and a healer. The Sioux believed the roundness of the drum represented the wholeness of the universe. The drum is made of wood and animal hide. The Sioux belived that the hide (since it is from another living spirit) is sacred, and when the drum is beat the spirit of the animal flows with the spirit of the human."
