The Drums are Waking...
400 Drums is a campaign dedicated to supporting Indigenous Elders, artists, language speakers and tour operators to harness new online platforms to monetize their skills while sharing their teachings and stories.
Among all ancient cultures, are the common threads...
The 400 Drums project aspires to explore, contemplate, communicate and reflect these common threads such that we might dream a new future in balance with the earth and all relations once again.
Behind the Drums
400 Drums is a series of NFTs derived from one-of-a-kind Indigenous drums, hand crafted by David Fierro of the Okanagan Nation.
They are hand-painted in Acrylic, with the paints designed by color theorist Tamara Goddard, who incorporates phosphorescence into the pigments for stunning effects with black lights. David Fierro creates each design on the face of the drums.
The drums are made with special care and Indigenous Protocols to ensure the vibrational medicine works with people to help them attune to higher states. Supporting emotional well-being, connection and fluid thinking.
The 400 Drums first collection showcases 10 one-of-a-kind drums under three lighting conditions, including black lights. Each of the 10 drums showcased will be gifted to NFT holders throughout activations on the roadmap.
"400 Drums is an enterprise to float all boats upon the tide. It is a collaboration of many talented people working cohesively, for the health and wellness of Indigenous economies in Canada and abroad."
- David Fierro, Drum Maker/Artist
400 Drums was designed through the Indigenous Economic Lens with extensive input from Indigenous Elders, leaders and communities. This lens honors Indigenous knowledge, values and planning processes while recognizing the cultural diversity of our communities.

Back to the Fire
For the first phase of our launch, we are releasing an exclusive batch of 444 Generation 0 NFTs to build a strong "True Believer" community prior to the full release of the collection. These will all have a unique trait not available in future releases.
Since the purpose of this initial mint is to help gain engagement for the project before the full launch, we're limiting the Mint List spots to influencers and community members who will work with us to raise the profile of this project and create value for holders of our NFTs.
444 is the first of two private mints with the second release planned for later in June, where an additional 2,222 NFTs will be available for mint.
117 Cultural Items Gifted to Indigenous Youth
