It is said that the drum was brought to the Indian people by a woman. Therefore, there is a woman spirit that resides inside the drum. Appropriately, anyone who comes in contact with the drum is expected to treat it with respect and care.

The drum is often thought to bring the physical and mental side of a person back in touch with his or her spiritual of heart side.  As with many things in the Native American Culture, the drum is used to bring balance and rejuvenation to a person through their participation in dancing singing or listening to the heart beat.
