First Friday at the Heard: The Healing Power of Native Drumming

May is International Drum Month, and we’re planning a First Friday to celebrate the healing power of Native drumming! Join us on Friday, May 5 from 5-9 p.m. at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, to immerse yourself in the powerful sounds of the Cozad Singers, a group of Southern singers representing the Kiowa and Comanche tribes. Experience the vibrant beats and traditional songs that have been passed down for generations. Experience how the heartbeat of the drum contributes to healing and personal wellness, including mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing. You will also learn from Head Singer, Kenneth Cozad, Sr., about the rich history of their songs and why the drum is considered a sacred healing instrument.

May 5th is National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls. The Cozad Signers will remember and pay tribute to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) with an honor song.

Experience the transformative and healing power of Native American drumming and raise awareness of MMIWG at the Heard Museum for this powerful First Friday event.
