Special Drum Tracy has made for Chief Spirit Hawk
I was extremely honoured and blessed to be asked by Chief Spirit Hawk of the Sioux Blackfoot tribe of Northern Canada to make him a new drum as his old drum had been stolen. The Chief said “I need a drum that will last my legacy and for those whom survive me in memory and time of my life as my drum was handed down to me; shall my next drum be handed to my children….I want to trust in someone to make me one; with pride, heart and soul; for the drum will carry the rhythm of my ancestors and their spirits as I offer the sounds of the beating hearts through the wind of the next generation”.
With that honour I went about making his drum. Personally, it was a spiritually profound, humbling and enlightening journey. His ancestors, guides and animal totems all joined me during its creation. There were many wonderful powerful messages within this drum. I created a pictorial and written journal of the drum for the Chief to hand over to his children sometime in the future. The Chiefs drum turned out to be the most beautiful drum I have ever made.
When the Chief received the drum, this is what he said, “It has come full circle, the drum is beautiful; it is everything I dreamt it would be…I was blessing it before I heard the sound of it, as I hummed in blessing I struck the drum its deep vibration echoed a low tone that matched my voice. What an amazing match its energy holds. Thank you so much for filling my heart, for my beat is complete”.
Here is a picture of the Chiefs drum upon his medicine wall.
