Authentic Native American Flute, Key of F#, Western Red Cedar and the bear claw totem is spruce Handmade by well known artist Marvin Yazzie Native American flutes by Marvin Yazzie are authentic hand made Native American flutes. More than any other flutes I’ve encountered these flutes are made using old traditionally methods. Each flute is made one at a time by hand, painstakingly shaped using a spoke shaver, and finally they are hand sanded and tuned to give each instrument a gentle sweet tone.

The traditional ways of flute making were taught to them by a relative, W. Yazzie flutes are carefully hand crafted the traditional way and each flute is custom made. First the Yazzies select the finest wood available, then the flutes are made by hand, one at a time. Each flute is then painstakingly shaped using a spoke shaver, and finally they are hand sanded and tuned to give each instrument a gentle sweet tone. They are sealed inside and out with tung oil. Yazzie Flutes are known for their clear singing tone and they are played and enjoyed by thousands of people throughout the world. Yazzie flutes are also played by professional flute players Raven Longbow, ElkWhistle, Windwalker, Illari, Fernando Cellicion, Scott August and ethnomusicologist Ernest Siva.
