14″ Shamanic Reindeer Drum ” Nature’s Song”

14″ Shamanic Reindeer Drum

Birthed in ceremony on the Birch New Moon in Capricorn in 2022, laced onto a Birch wood frame with a matching song caller on Birch.


This unique Shamanic Reindeer Drum was birthed in Ceremony on the Birch New Moon in Capricorn on the 2nd January 2022. This tree moon represents new beginnings and ushers in a time of powerful clearing and purification and inspiration offering the opportunity to set new intentions and even take new directions on our life path. All of these energies have been woven into the drum during its birthing

This lovely looking pale Reindeer hide is laced onto a green stained Birch wood frame and a green leather wrapped iron ring

Finished with a green leather wrapped Bridget’s Cross handle which is inset with a lovely piece of Tree Agate.

The matching green leather song caller is bound onto a hand polished Birch wood handle naturally shed by the Birch trees on our land in Scotland, it has a unique Moss Agate cabochon inset into the end of the handle.

The drum comes with a small matching medicine pouch with a Birch disc decoration and contains personally gathered natural sacred items representative of the four elements of earth, air, fire and water and also includes a hand picked crystal as a gift for you, and your drum. As your connection to drum evolves these unique pouches can be filled with personal items which can be changed in and out dependent on the work you are undertaking together with your drum.

This medium sized light weight shamanic reindeer drum has a lovely harmonic voice and strong energy, the skin is quite even in texture giving multiple sweet spots for playing, and it would make a wonderful healing or journeying drum.

Tree Jasper is associated with the heart chakra and sometimes referred to as  the “supreme nurturer”. It holds and supports us during times of stress, bringing a sense of completeness and tranquillity and facilitates in balancing and aligning the physical, mental and emotional bodies. When undertaking shamanic journeys with this stone it will help with recalling the journey afterwards (and does the same to assist with dreamwork). Jasper stimulates our creativity and imagination, encouraging our ideas into action. It can really help people who need more focus, to strengthen their organisation abilities, and drive their motivation.It’s protective energies and those of strength, courage and determination blend beautifully with the energy of the Reindeer hide.

The Reindeer carries a powerful matriarchal energy, immensely resilient and powerful and yet is a gentle spirit and a great healer. Here in these Northern lands, the Reindeer is sometimes associated with the Goddess Elen. In Mongolia Reindeer feature prominently on ancient megaliths carved with symbols. Little is known about their meaning or function; these “deer stones” take their name from the stylised depictions of flying deer carved into the stone.

Reindeer as a totem animal symbolises protection, wisdom, resourcefulness, knowledge, connection, creativity and inventiveness.

Ros Simons has been creating sacred shamanic drums and ceremonial tools for over 18 years, using personally refined techniques and practices that were handed down to her in the traditional way from teachers and mentors.

The drum-birthing process is carried out in ceremonial space, with prayers and thanks given to honour the spirit of the animal, the trees and the stones of the earth that gifted themselves to bring these sacred allies and medicine tools into being. The drum lacing is cut from the same hide as the drum head ~ weaving the spirit of the animal into the drum; the wood, the colours and any crystals incorporated into each drum are gathered by Ros through otherworld journeying and guidance from her drum guide, every drum is unique.

Your personal drum will become a guide, a healer, a teacher and a friend, that walks with you on your path, and takes you on a deep journey of other world and inner world exploration.

All of the Shamanic Drums birthed by Ros are guaranteed for two years provided you treat them with love and care and follow the included drum care instructions.

If this shamanic reindeer drum has already found its keeper or you would like a Shamanic Drum similar to this, but unique and birthed especially for you, then you can order a bespoke drum to be made to your individual wishes and birthed with your own prayers and intentions. For more information please take a look at the Commissions Page.

All of the hides and frames for Ros Simons shamanic drums are sustainably and ethically sourced.

The reindeer hide comes from the Sami herders via a small family run arctic tannery in Sweden, purchasing these hides supports the indigenous people of the Arctic lands to continue in their traditional ways of life

All the skins Ros uses in her drums have been a bi-product of another sustainable purpose (killed for food or due to environmental pressures of overpopulation) and would otherwise be wasted; no animal was ever killed just to provide skin for a drum. Drum making can be seen as a reparation, a way of returning some beauty and honouring to an animal whose life has already been taken. In this way we return more to the ways of our ancestors, ensuring that all of the animal is used and nothing is wasted. The spirit of the animal lives on and is reborn into the drum.

The Wood for the frames is sourced from sustainably managed forests; and the wood for the song caller is personally gathered and seasoned by Ros every year..
