Native American Music
to Heal the Spirit
Native American song is much more than entertainment, intellectual stimulation,
or social pursuit. It is used to change the life condition of the entire
community. It helps to heal the maladies of the mind, body, and spirit.
Native community, the musician is thought of as a sound healer and an
important teacher. The instrument makers, even the plants and animals
involved, are blessed and initiated, and they hold a special place in
American instruments include: Taos drum, bombo, log drums, frame drums,
bones, jingle mats, Kechua flutes, reed horns, mouth bows, ancient marimbas,
hoe blades, reed bundles and rattles made of nut shells, seed pods, sea
shells, turtle claws, animal horns and animal toenails.
