    I am american indian, and we have let non-indian's participate in many of our functions to help educate and teach our heritage to others.

    But it is up to the shief of that particular tribe.

    If you speak to the medicine man and tell him it owuld be good medicine to allow an outsider to participate, he may be able to influence the chief.

    It would totally be up to the tribal council and the chief. You need to petition the council for a hearing on that.

    Do you have any kind of native american tribal affiliation?

    Visit your nearest tribal office to find out how to apply.

    You might want to befriend one of the drummers at a powwow and ask how you can get involved.

    These are just suggestions as women of the tribes generally have responsibilities and judgement over family matters, not on who is qualified to be a drummer, or singer.

    Hope this helps!

    If you are not specifically interested in Native American drumming there are lots of "open" drum circles that are not a formal Pow Wow and have drummers (and drums) from all over the world.  Usually they are run by the local community, are loosely constructed and open to all, beginners to professionals.  It is a thrilling experience to feel the energy and non-verbal communication connecting all types of people.  A beginner set of bongo drums can be purchased for as little as $30 and you can learn to play simply by listening to the surrounding rhythms.  Check out the hub "Drum Circles - A Unique Experience" by Pamela99 for more info and happy drumming!
