Tsimshian Shaman Healing with Drum

This is a picture of a Tsimshian shaman healing session. The shaman is at the left wearing a bearskin cloak and a bear claw crown. An assistant is drumming. Note that this drum is very warped.

The drummer's left hand is behind the drum, which indicates this is a single-headed drum, the kind I make.

This drum appears to be very large, and the drum mallet appears to be a plain stick without any adornment.

I have retired after 20 genial years of drum making. I am still making drums that interest me.
If any are currently available, they can be found by clicking here.


This picture is described
as the reenactment
of the healing of
a young boy.


(The image is dated
circa 1915.)
