Native American Style Flute made from the very best exotic woods. Tiger Koa Sound Chamber. Cocobolo and Maple Burl Kokopelli Totem. Maple Burl Mouthpiece and Foot with Crushed Turquoise inlay. Tradition has it that the Native American flute was primarily a courting instrument. A young man would make a flute, set himself off from the group he was with and play a song that he and his beloved knew. She would hear this and understand his intentions. Once he and his beloved were joined together, he would throw away the flute never to play one again.
