THE DRUM KEEPERS - Native American Artist Prints
Native Americans of all Tribes, as well as the Lakota, believe the Drum (Concega) to be a living breathing life source. It is understood that the Drum's spirit is very powerful and mysterious (wakan). When the Drum is played it is carrying the heart beat of Mother Earth and calls all the Spirit Nations together for celebration and ceremony, So sacred is the Drum to the Lakota, that a man may be chosen to be a Drum Keeper (Concega Yuha) and must treat the Drum with the upmost of respect. Certain rituals are strictly adhered to by the Drum Keepers, and food, blankets, and even names are given to the Drum, for it is it's living source that connects us to the Great Father.
"This one I basically had in my head. For many years I played in a band as lead guitar, base guitar and singer. I had always loved music and liked the way it made peope feel. The power of music seems to breakdown all barriers; cultural, language. Because of this powerful effect, Native Americans believe that the instrument itself is a living thing, especially the Drum."..... Melvin War Eagle.
