  • Native American bird and animal symbols and totems are believed to represent the physical form of a spirit helper and guide. The meaning of the Hummingbird symbol was to signify peace, love and happiness. Hummingbirds are oftentimes depicted in their symbol as a mated pair as a symbol of devotion, permanence, eternity and life cycles. Hummingbirds were also admired as ferocious fighters and defenders of their territory. Native Americans believe it is good luck to see a Hummingbird before major events such as long hunting trips or travelling to other villages.  The Hummingbird is an important bird in the Southwestern Pueblo cultures. Hopi legend speaks of the Hummingbird as intervening on behalf of the people to convince the gods to bring rain. Hummingbird feathers are highly prized and used ceremonially and in dance costumes.

    Living Drums

    Gary Halbach, Owner, Living Drums

    Gary was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in 1951. He attended UW-Oshkosh, majoring in social work, and was the Director of the Addiction Treatment Education Program at Rockford Memorial Hospital in Rockford, IL, when his interest in drumming began in the late 80's.

    Gary studied the art of drum making with an Objibwe Native in New Mexico, and says, "To me, drumming is the spiritual made physical by the sound and motion of the drum."

    In October of 1991 Gary went through the New Warrior Training Adventure where his mission became: "Carry the spirit and energy of the drum to men and women throughout the world."

    Drums have connected Gary to people throughout the country. Gary's background in counseling has made him realize that a lot of counseling can be done in ways that are not spoken, and that includes the emotions and feelings that go on with people drumming.

    Four of Gary's 24" Ceremonial Drums were used during the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony on February 8, 2002 in Salt Lake City!

    Living Drums. Experience the call of the drum, the spirit of the drum, the heartbeat of the drum.
