You'll be able to make your drum as authentic as you wish, modeled after any of the Chippewa, Sioux, Cheyenne, Slav, Arapaho, or Blackfoot drums depicted in these pages. And once your drum is finished, Mr. Mason provides a wide variety of authentic decoration ideas to truly capture the flavor and appearance of actual American Indian drums.Scout leaders, camp directors, and school teachers will find this book perfect for making easy and inexpensive percussion instruments for jamborees, shows, etc., and young people will discover that making their own drums is fun as well as rewarding.
