DRUM MAKING WORKSHOP – Saturday, March 8th, 2:00 – 5:00PM w/ David Kakotewit of the Lakota and Cree people

We have asked our relatives to help us pray, and now they have answered.
The Heartbeat of the Mother

Saturday, March 8th, 2:00 – 5:00PM

In this 3-hour workshop, we will fashion a “Native American” Hand Drum from ethically harvested Buffalo hide and Maple hoops and create a drumstick to give her life.

The day will commence with Prayer and the setting of intention in a talking circle.  We then select the hide and hoop we want to work with and begin the exchange of energy between the giver and receiver. After the drums and drumsticks have been created we will have a “Blessing Ceremony” and end our day with Prayers of gratitude.

Conducted by David Westcott (Kakotewit-‘Manwho-Makes-Fire’), Kakotewit is a traditional medicine man trained in the ceremonial ways of the Lakota and Cree peoples of the Northern Plains.  Kakotewit has served for twenty years as spiritual intercessor the Walking Bear Healing Circle, a vibrant prayer community located on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.  Kakotewit serves the people in the tradition of his predecessors – carrying a pipe, counseling individuals and families through life transitions, conducting sweat lodge ceremonies, Vision Quests, and preparing initiates for the Sun Dance ceremony.

$215 per individual covers the cost of materials, instruction, and you have a drum to keep!

Space limited to 8 people.         Register at www.kulamovement.com
