Have you guys been keeping up with the awesome tutorials on Cheyenne and Arapaho Television (CATV47)? Last year we told you about a new show called The Native Drum with host Shawn Littlebear (Southern Cheyenne). Littlebear is a traditional drum maker who shares with us his various drum making tips and techniques.

In Episode 4 of The Native Drum, Littlebear makes a handle for a small hand drum.

      Actually, it is pretty easy. I have enjoyed making drums. I have one one-sided drum and I also made a double-sided drum which was easier then the one-sided drum.
