My paper is about Native American Drumming. I have researched and documented the different types of native american drums, how they were created and what the different uses were.
Native American drumming has been around for thousands of years. There is no exact date as to when the first native American drum was invented. The drum was a way for Native Americans to connect to the creator and to have a spiritual experience. The sound created from these powerful drums were many times meant to mimic or recreate the sounds of thunder to get the attention of the gods. This was a way to directly communicate with the creator. It has also been said that by playing these sacred drums you are directly opening up a portal between the human and spiritual realm. The drum was actually often viewed as a living entity. The drum also was described as the heartbeat to mother earth.
