At Bashkwegin Manitoba we practice the art of making all-natural brain-tanned and smoked buckskin leather and natural unbleached rawhide. We work with Manitoba deer, elk, bison, moose, and caribou hides, as well as Muskox from the north.

The beauty of the bison is represented in full Buffalo robes using Manitoba Plains Bison hides with the best January winter wool.  We are also building solid oak round hand drum frames in our own wood shop. All natural and unbleached rawhide is used to put together complete ready-to-assemble drum kits in three sizes: 12″, 14″, 17″.

Custom services include skull cleaning and as well as complete custom tanning to order.  

We have built many excellent relationships with many individuals, organizations and communities providing our consulting and teaching services.  From informal presentations to week long bush camp workshops, we have had great success and good times teaching young and old the natural ways of working with the wildlife that live among us.
