In this course students will explore their own cultural, traditional, and contemporary identities through the physical building of hand drums, rattles, and medicine bags and creation of designs. The first section of the course will cover the historical and regional uses of the hand drum, rattle, and medicine bag, as well as a hands on demonstration of how to build. The second section of the course will cover the basics of creating designs that reflect personal, cultural, and/or community identity; these designs will be painted or transferred onto the completed materials.
