"The Drum” is the first episode of an eleven part television series from 2001 known as “The Pow Wow Trail”. Over the course of 2 years producer Jeremy Torrie and film crew traveled to over 40 reservations, ceremonies and Pow Wow celebrations. Their travels brought them all over the United States and Canada shooting and interviewing the best Pow Wow singers, dancers, the most respected elders, songwriters, traditional teachers and the various perspectives of people living, traveling and competing on the Pow Wow circuit.
With hundreds of hours of footage and over 1 million dollars spent the Pow Wow Trail came to life as an eleven episode series meant to educate and entertain an audience interested in the true way of Native American life, ceremonies, celebrations and the origins as they know it.
