Drum Making for Camping
Emma Brown: Well, a campfire at night just wouldn’t be right without a song. And, we’re lucky enough to have with us tonight, Alice Guss. She’s going to play her drum and sing a West Coat song for us while we check in with her husband, Stewart, to find out how their drums are made. Take it away, Alice.
Alice Guss: [Singing]
Emma Brown: Hey Stewart!
Stewart Nahanee: Hello!
Emma Brown: This is Stewart Nahanee. He is from -- and he’s a wood crafter with the Squamish First Nation. And, you have -- you built all the stuff here.
Emma Brown: These are all your drums.
Stewart Nahanee: Yes.
Emma Brown: Just a run down on them.
Stewart Nahanee: This wood craft that I've done in our shop and these are seeder frames that I've made. This one here is 10-inch. This one here is a bamboo frame. As you can see, there’s no particular size in the drum. This one here is six-inch and these frames here are 24-inch.
Emma Brown: And they obviously give different sounds, right?
Stewart Nahanee: Yeah, yeah.
Emma Brown: Now, you’ve cut this.
Stewart Nahanee: This one dried off of the bear.
Emma Brown: Okay.
Stewart Nahanee: And, they sliced in bamboo shot in the bush which is -- this is farm deer.
Emma Brown: Okay. I understand you use the whole hide.
Stewart Nahanee: Yes.
Emma Brown: There’s absolutely nothing that goes to waste.
Stewart Nahanee: The lace is also part of the deer hide. What I'm going to do is we start up with it in small circle and we just start to feed our line through. And, it doesn’t really take a lot of time to do this once you're --
Emma Brown: So, you continue this until you're done?
Stewart Nahanee: Yeah.
Emma Brown: Tie it all up, secure it similar to this and then let it dry there.
Stewart Nahanee: Once you're done this, we’re actually going to come up like this.
Emma Brown: Oh!
Stewart Nahanee: Okay, so it’s all it is. Just keep going around to round the loop and just keep going around. And with the extra lace, once you're finished, then you just put that across and make your handle.
Emma Brown: And then, you get --
Stewart Nahanee: A drum.
Emma Brown: Very nice! Did you make this, too?
Stewart Nahanee: Yes, I did it.
Emma Brown: Thank you so much for joining us Stewart. I think I'm going to just spend a little of time on this one. See if I can compose to finishing it.
