Hand Drum Songs by Ross Paskemin

Ross Paskemin from Sweetgrass Cree Nation is a song keeper, drum maker and a member of Sweetgrass Singers. This spring, he released CD with the help of Dr David MacKinnon and the nehiyawewin.ca project. His July performance at North Battleford’s “Gog” even got a report in the Battleford News-Optimist by Josh Greschner – where you can learn more.
