Story

This Frog Drum is the first of a series of thirteen drum designs that also represent the names of the moons from different Coastal Nations. I have chosen the frog to begin the series for many reasons. This design has been with me for about eight years. Though, it has been waiting for the others to be completed. The time has gone by quickly and I have decided to release the first ones before I know what the others would be.

This past February, I completed my third traditional fast and committed to being a Sweat Lodge leader. When I came out of my fast, it was near the end of February, and the frogs came out after the winter months and began singing all over the Saanich Peninsula. It reminded me that the moon in February is called the frog moon among the Tsartlip people. With the moon in March, the frogs come out to sing, heralding the coming of spring.
