THE INUIT DRUM DANCER



Like people everywhere, the Inuit have songs for sad times and happy, for the end of a good hunt, to mock enemies and to greet friends. The human voice "throat music" is the primary musical instrument. Also, a flat, circular caribou skin drum, filled with pebbles provides a rhythmic accompaniment for these delightful tunes.

To this day, proud Inuit gather around village fires for heart warming singing and dancing. It is an exciting and fulfilling part of Inuit life loved by everyone in the village .
