Discover the spiritual art of Native American percussion – a musical passion that has echoed across generations and still resonates with the strong, spirited rhythms of today's Chickasaw drummers.
Chickasaw artist Jeremy Wallace discussed one of his painted drums. Jeremy was a member of the Chickasaw Dance Troupe and explained that the designs shown on his drums, the earth, moon and sun, are all representative of the significance of the four directions. This is truly the heartbeat of a nation.
Jeremy’s life was tragically cut short in 2017, but his Chickasaw spirit will always be remembered.
