Women have served in many roles throughout history, with Native women accepting responsibility in every area of life in our world. Our purpose at the drum has always been to mentor youth along a cultural road, to keep our language and songs, and to follow the heartbeat of the drum. Along this journey we pursue our health, identity, language and knowledge through the heartbeat of the drum."
