I just wanted to share a project that I took on a couple of years ago. My Mide elder and Waeheq Geegwegigaboo Morrison of Nigigoonseminicang Ontario helped me complete a drum started by myself and good friend. He gave us teachings about the drum as we put the hides on it. This drum is named in honor of my ancestor Okeema (Chief) Waukechonape (Crooked Beak Man). It is used for ceremonies conducted for my family. As with a pipe many responsibilities go with being a drum keeper.
