The drum is considered one of the main percussive instruments, along with the rattle, which was used in traditional Northwest Coast ceremonies and cultural events. Its beat provides the basis from which dances, songs and oral histories are performed during a Potlatch.

Chilkat references the beautiful blankets originally created by the Chilkat tribe near Alaska. These intricate blankets were created only by those noblewomen in the community who had the inherited right to do so.
