"Lone Medicine Pipe Man" is from the Kainai (Blood Tribe) of the Blackfoot Confederacy in the Treaty No. 7 region.
Brent shares some ancient teachings on how to make a traditional hand drum that were transferred to him through his grandfather who led a life of spirit, song and ceremony. It was through this traditional oral practice that Brent is able to share some of the Blackfoot stories that were passed down to him on his journey. He walks us through the steps involved in making a drum.
On the second evening, Nii'danamska returns to feast and bless the drums with the group and together we all breathe life into the spirit of our drums.
