Hand Drum Workshop

Event Type

Join OC Aboriginal for this free hand drum workshop to experience traditional experiential learning on June 23, 24 or 25 at the Kelowna campus. This opportunity is for any self-identified Indigenous student at OC. They have contracted two Knowledge Keepers to take us through three hours of training on how to lace a drum, make a drum stick and learn about the traditions, teachings and protocols that go with making and owning a traditional hand drum. The drum is yours to keep after the workshop.

Hands-on learning is a process which Indigenous Communities have exemplified in all aspects of their lives since time began. Traditional teachings, skills, and processes taught from one generation to the next in a traditional Indigenous knowledge transfer system. In higher education we call this process “experiential learning” or “Work Integrated learning,” no matter the label used, we all learn the same way.

Space is extremely limited so contact us today to reserve your seat!
