About me.

Welcome to my site, my name is Linda Silvas; I am Native American Indian from the Juaneno Band of Mission Indians Acjachemen Nation and originate from San Diego, California. I now live in the Pacific Northwest of the United States w my studio is located at the base of the Olympic Mountains. This is w I make my Drums, Native artwork and write books. I am Author of "Mama Bear Baby Bear" Indian Lore and an International Speaker traveling our Mother Earth speaking about substance abuse and family circle. My book is written from my own personal experience of raised Baby Bear for eight years. I now travel the United States and abroad sharing my story with millions that are walking the same path. I have been designing drums for many years and also conduct drum workshops w a designer can make and put their own energy into a beautiful elk or buffalo drum. All the materials I use are natural and strong animal hides, I DO NOT use deer or goat in any of my drums. All hides are soaked in rain water/well, (no chemicals) with a branch from grandfather cedar tree. Each finished drum is hand rubbed with bear fat after it is hand painted, numbered and signed. Drums unless requested, are finished in the back with real fur and/or buckskin and feathers and include a matching Drum beater. I will conduct drum workshops in your area for 10 designers or more and that includes a drumming and storytelling. As well as a gift for the facilitator. For more information: email me at contact seller in ebay. Please leave your email address or phone number for me to contact you. I as a Native American/artist I stand proud by my work and guarantee it. If you are not satisfied please do not hesitate to contact me. Drums are available in sizes from 10" to 36" double-sided Buffalo drum. "(The Mother Lode)" Included with each drum purchase is a gift. A lot of my designs are the Mama Bear Baby Bear design which represents my book and story. Everyone knows how to play the drum... it is the first sound we hear is that of our Mothers Heart Beat.
