Following the tradition of native oral histories, Eagle Drums is the retelling of an ancient myth that has been passed down from generation to generation for hundreds of years. This is the story of an Inupiaq Eskimo boy in the Arctic who is taken from his family by a flock of golden eagles who are able to take human form. The boy is told that he must learn a series of lessons or his life will be taken. Thus begins the story of how Inupiaq music and dance came to be.
