Drum Keepers


The call of the singers, the beat of the drum helped designer Trey Blackhawk understand his history and ancestors. The drum's materials were once living: a buffalo or moose hide and a cedar tree were sacrificed to bring people together to heal, dance, and sing. The drum and sticks are framed by traditional applique patterns, a tribute to the mothers who hold the world together. Bands of color represent seasons of life and all its milestones.. A portion of the proceeds from the "Drum Keepers" Blanket sales will go to the American Indian College Fund, a nonprofit organization that helps fund scholarships for Native American students and tribal colleges. Your purchase helps support their honorable mission.
