Teponaztli Log Drum & HueHuetl Drum- Aztec drums. The Teponaztli log drum and HueHuetl skin drums were the main percussion instruments of the pre-columbian Aztecs. Smaller Huehuetl was originally hung from the shoulder and brought into battle, and struck with the hand. Larger one’s were used in ceremonies including human sacrifices; often with the teponaztli. After the Spanish conquered Mexico, legend has it that the huehuetl was outlawed by the Spanish, who feared the battle drums — punishment was cutting off of the offending hand. Years later, when the drum was allowed again, the legend continues, players struck them with sticks, in memory of those who lost hands in the past.
