Notes:
Illustrated in Fowler and Matley (1979) (Figure 63a) with the following remarks: "Drums are reported for those Numic peoples who early adopted horses and other Plains elements, ie. the Ute, and the Northern and Eastern Shoshoni. Those who did not adopt horses, such as the Southern Paiute, the Gosiute, and the Western Shoshoni, apparently lacked drums during the aboriginal period (Stewart, 1942:295; Steward, 1943:278). Some Northern Paiute groups, however, may have acquired drums from Plateau groups to the north (Kelly, 1932:195)." p. 72
