KEITH BUILDING YOUR NATIVE AMERICAN POWWOW DRUM
Each Powwow Drum board is run through a planer to make board Uniform uniform front and back
Each Powwow Drum Board runs through table saw 6 times: 2 for width, 2 for length and 2 to put the correct angle on each piece
Keith builds a Medicine Wheel in every Powwow Drum to support all of the staves.
Keith sands Powwow Drum to smooth finish using 40 grit, 80 grit, and 120 grit sandpaper. This removes the angles to make the drum into a Sacred Circle.

HERE'S WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT THEIR POWWOW DRUMS
GRANDFATHER DRUM TO MICHIGAN
I am part of a circle of native and non native people who have a collective vision to start a SOBER community drum. We had thought through the teachings that we have, that we would need to make that Grandfather ourselves. We found ’The Drum People’ online in our search for materials. Although we knew that Keith and Cheryl do not sell parts, I decided to call them and see what they were all about. After talking with the both of them at length, I was assured that they are walking a good path and their intent is to help others (Some things are greater than money).
I talked with our group and we collectively agreed to have them make our sacred drum. Mishomis (Grandfather) arrived today.We are absolutely speechless !! I am writing this to publicly thank Kieth and Cheryl for enriching our lives.But also to tell everyone, native and non native,that if you are looking for a drum that is extremely beautiful and also one that you can feel the prayers and love that went into it while it was being made , CALL THEM !! You will not be disappointed. Chi Miigwetch (Great thanks) from the Anishinabe of Northern Michigan Greg Antoine
KEEPS ITS VOICE IN HUMIDITY!
I got my 26" Pow Wow Drum. I haven`t been able to think of the word that best describe how I feel so I'm just gonna say what comes to my heart. My Drum is absolutely above and beyond my expectations. I Love It . When I say it`s the best I've ever seen or heard, that`s the Understatement of the Year. I'm Native American and been to many Pow Wows and never have I seen a Drum So Beautiful and well built. Plus the way it sings to me is so harmonious its mind-blowing. I have several hand Drums and its been quit humid here lately, (which can affect a Drums sound). Little Badger`s Drum is the only Drum that has not been affected by the humid air. All of my other Drums have failed and 1 has become so loose I can`t even play it. I tell you that when you reach The Drum People's web site your search for shopping around has come to an end. There is no need to search any further. For you have found the Right People to build you a Fantastic Drum. Little Badger prays over the Drum and that in itself is Special to me.They take Great care of you also.( Very kind and friendly). So when I say you can TRUST these people to build you a Drum or Drum Bag or Paint your Drum. I stake my LIFE on it. I'm so pleased that I`m buying another one next week. No need to worry about their quality. It's out of this world. Little Badger& Cheryl are real down to earth people. They care about their crafts and take great care of you,with their Great Gift and Prices. I know that this is a bit long but I really couldn't say how good I feel with just a few words. With all this said buy from The Drum People, the Caring People. George Pinder (Little Red Hawk)

BEST CONSTRUCTION AND BUILT WITH LOVE
My powwow drum arrived today. I am thrilled, and grateful to have found Keith and Cheryl. I have seen many other drums on the market and never felt good about their construction or sound. My drum has a deep resonance that stirs the soul. Keith builds with love, using the best materials. I cannot express my gratitude enough. Blessings to both of you Michelle Nagel
