Our Herstory

We are called “The Shadow Drummers,” for everyone is equal in the shadows; it matters not your skin colour, beliefs, gender, or appearance.

It is with our philosophy that the Shadow Drummers formed in 2001. Rising from the Mattawa Women’s Resource Centre’s aboriginal based program- Women in the Wild, the Shadow Drummers started as a native women’s hand drum circle open to all women and girls. The group grew in numbers and sister groups were seeded. The Shadow Drummers were invited to travel to other communities in hope that women would awaken their own voices within.  As spiritual human beings we celebrate our commitment to each other and to all of the creation. We are constantly looking for new ways to lift spirits and consciousness at the same time, by celebrating our love of rhythm and drum.  Our music is First Nation, traditional, contemporary and original songs from across Turtle Island.
