Drum - Artifacts

A & B: 2 musical instruments used to accompany the Hula dance. The bamboo stick has been cut part way down into narrow strips (13" long). Some tips are broken or missing on some strips. 2 pieces of masking tape, 3" wide has been applied around the handles. The initial E K are written on the inside. The two instruments are beat together to create a rhythmic sound. They are called Pu'ili (plural) in Hawaiian.
