(Drum Teachings for Success)

 

Two Rivers Gallery is excited to partner with the Indian Health Board to host a summer Drum Workshop. Native Drumming at Indian Health Board shows us how drumming / singing can help us on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level heal though cultural practices, language use & revitalization and re-indigenizing current program practices to combat and prevent drug / alcohol abuse and suicide.

We are currently looking for 8 youth and 8 adults.  This program is completely free to participants and programs involved.  All participants will learn how to make their own hand drum and learn to sing traditional Native songs.

 

Meet the Instructors!

Michael Norcross

Michael Norcross (Ojibwe & Dakota) is the Indigenous Drumming Instructor for the
Minneapolis Indian Health Board. He is known in the community for his singing & drum making skills and is an active participant in ceremonies. 

Michael holds knowledge in the D(L)akota world of songs and language.  He shares this knowledge through teaching and facilitating group discussions around the drum.

Michael is walking proof that the art of the drum and song can save a life, by one's turning to it in a time of need and despair, as well as times of gratitude and contentment.
