Larisa Kuzhuget, a Tuvan shamaness of the Adyg Eeren Shamanic Society

Yakut shaman with a drum, early 1900s. Following a period of instruction, the young shaman received his or her first drum. Rarely were the drum and baton received at the same time. The base of the drum was made of a special wooden hoop and was oval or circular in shape. The hide from a wild reindeer or a moose was pulled over the hoop. The main tool of shamans, the drum enabled the shaman to call spirits by means of sounds.
