What are Native American Floor Drums? Pedestal drums are one type of drum used by the Native Americans in ceremonies and even in their daily lives. Drums represent much to people, particularly Native Americans. They remind us of our mother’s heartbeat; they are soothing and therapeutic and they are also used in many traditional ceremonies within various tribes. Pedestal drums are larger floor drums that are made from slats of wood or hollowed log, usually using a native yellow pine (depending on where the tribe that makes them is located) and cedar. Beautiful rawhide is stretched over each end of the drum and rawhide lacing complete the drum. They may vary in size from 12” to as wide as 42” giving you a variety of sizes to meet your needs as both coffee tables or end tables.
How are Native American drum tables used by American Indians and in Native American ceremonies? How are they used today in a more modern culture and society? Rustic Native American pedestal drums were used as tom-tom drums in many ceremonies. They produced a different sound from hand drums and provide a great addition to any Native American ceremony with their deep tones.
There are also other uses for these beautiful pedestal drums. These larger, floor-type Native American drums are great for using as furniture in your home such as log drum end tables or coffee tables. Due to their size and durability, they make great tables and they are perfect for the rustic western tables or southwest decor. They are very popular in log homes and cabins and also in country cottages, ranch homes, lodges or in any setting where you want a beautiful rustic style. Native American floor drums are much more comfortable than today’s modern furniture and they are also more unique and personal. You can add to the decor of the room with other Native American accessories such as rawhide lamp shades, southwestern woven rugs or Indian pottery as well as other Native American drum tables.
