Ancient carvings show that the origin of the flute dates back tens of thousands of years.
Modern cedar and love flutes are thought to have been first used by the Sioux Indians.
Legend has it five hole love flutes
were played in courting rituals to
serenade a young mans intended
bride. Lately the native american
flute has become very popular in
meditation and is still a large part
of Indian religion.
Books are now being published
that teach the art of the Native
American flute. The Native American Flute Is a popular instrument
because of its ease of playing. We highly
recommend "The Native American Flute:
Understanding The Gift". This the perfect
mate to Our Navajo flute crafted by Jonah

Care of your flute.
Lipstick or ink will stain your flute.
Avoid direct sunlight. You leave it on your
dashboard it will crack[its wood].
Sudden temperture changes will crack a
wood instrument. Bring it to room temperture
before playing. Do not play it for more than
two hours a day. Shake or swab the moisture
out of it after use. Oil it with a mineral oil[do not use
cooking oil] and put a drop down the mouthpiece. It can
last a lifetime.
Thank you and enjoy your musical journey.
