Clutching their handmade leather drum-sticks decorated with or all of the four sacred colors, the Keewatin Otchitchak Traditional Women Singers meet at Thunderbird House on Main Street in Winnipeg for the sheer love of singing.

They come from different places in life, from different stages in life, from different perspectives to sing as one voice. Their voices rise and fall to the stready beat of the Drum, as they take turns leading the songs in perfect unison, in perfect love, and in perfect trust.

Each woman has her own reason for being drawn to the Drum, whether she has heard the sound her whole life and has finally learned to listen or if it draws her during initial exposure to the hypnotic beat.

When the Drum draws a woman to it, no one can say for certain if the Drum guide the woman, or if she is meant to guide the songs of Drum.
