This vintage child’s drum was probably made for the tourist trade and sold in Santa Fe or Taos.  It is believed to come from Taos Pueblo. The wood is hollowed out on each end. Rawhide is laced securely over each end and held tightly with leather laces. It has a nice tonal quality when banged.This is the perfect item for a child to join in celebrations with a joyous drum beat.

Provenance: Purchased from a collector in Arizona.
