‘How to Make a Hoop Drum’ Videos by Patrick Pinson

I’ve created a series of videos showing you how to make your own Native American Style hoop drum. I give these videos freely from my heart to yours. I believe knowledge is meant to be shared freely, as it was shared with me. The drum is the heart beat of Mother Earth. Our first drum is the one within our chest. The heart space is about freely giving and receiving, without barriers and trusting that there is abundance everywhere.
