  • If you would like to join us for fellowship, council and lunch - without building a drum kit - please register for just $25.  Registration for lunch-only will close on October 16.

You’ll be set for drumming at Illuman events throughout the year:
Monthly in-person councils * Soularize * Awaken * Men’s Rites of Passage * Elder’s Right of Passage * Volunteer work weekends

Special Event:
Workshop includes drum making, a short Illuman welcome council, lunch, snacks and beverages. One of the men will explain the intention and cultural significance of our drumming.

What to bring: We order your drum upon registration and will pre soak the skin and have it prepunched. All you need to bring is yourself and maybe a friend, a son…and an extra chair if possible.
