Music Makers – Rattle Making

SHAKING THE RATTLE:
Traditions and Rattle Making

Indigenous music is by its nature participatory; it lends itself to socialization.
Songs come from the natural world and from dreams, often expressing a deep
appreciation for life and sustenance.

Over the course of two days, Rattle Maker ADAM SKYE will teach participants how to make personal rattles.

Time permitting, SADIE BUCK will lead a rattle circle and rhythm session using the rattle creations.

Buffet lunch was served.
