We thought Ardrossan Students might like to see this video from the folks at Canadian Geographic featuring Elder Wilson Bearhead. 

Wilson has uploaded a video to the Canadian Geographic website were he talks a bit about the drum and sings a few songs with one of his sons and two of his grandsons. Perhaps EIPS students would love to see this: here is a link to the youtube upload https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yxs2J3Zb6V0
