Native American Drum Maker shares drum, song & meaning

In our Kindermusik for the Young Child, second year program, we are beginning to study the Native American music.  First, we start with the Drum, which to the Native American represents the heartbeat – where it all starts. 

This video features Alan Willes, who makes Native American drums, and shares with us the “Horse Theif” song, and all of the meaning behind the drum, and the song.  You’ll notice that in the Native American Culture, everything represents or means something important, and that ALL experiences are to learn from.

  1. Thank you for sharing that song. I enjoyed listening, I also have a 17″ drum, and it was great to hear a larger one.
