War Drum (Book Three, Card 28)

The drum is more than just a piece of music. It has enormous cultural and symbolic significance for the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota people. They think the drum has its own life and powerful energy. The drum is the Indian nation’s heartbeat. It carries Mother Earth’s heartbeat and brings spirits and cultures together. The drum, according to Native Americans, is commonly used to reconnect a person’s physical and mental selves with their spiritual selves. The drum, like many other aspects of Native American culture, is utilised to help people find balance and regeneration by dancing, singing, or listening to their heartbeat.
