Jorge Lewis will lead a drummaking workshop at the Museum at Campbell River this weekend.

Connect with the spirit of drumming

Since the beginning of time, humans have attempted to seek spiritual connection with the land through the use of a drum

Since the beginning of time, humans have attempted to seek spiritual connection with the land through the use of a drum.

The drum unites the heartbeat of the earth with the heartbeat of the people. It bonds communities together and serves as a profound healing tool. To drum is to become part of the greater wisdom of the world.

The Museum at Campbell River is offering a rare opportunity to build and learn about a drum.

On Saturday, from 1-4 p.m., master drum-maker Jorge ‘Two Eagles’ Lewis will guide participants through the process of constructing a drum.

Along the way, Lewis will offer teachings about drums, including the respect paid to the animal who has sacrificed its hide, stories of how the drum came to the people, usage of the drum and the spiritual connection of drums that continues from ancient times to today.

Each participant will create a 14” drum for keeping and will have ample opportunity to discuss drumming and learn about the construction of drums.

Lewis is from the Snuneymuxw nation, a descendent of powerful Shamans, mask dancers and chiefs.  He has resided in Campbell River for most of his life.

The fee for the workshop is $200 and includes all of the needed hide and materials.

This is a profound opportunity to gain insight into the on-going spiritual connection between drums and people.

Space is very limited so call the Museum at 250-287-3103 to reserve your spot.
