DRUMS: The round form of the drum represents the universe and its steady strong beat is the pulse, the heart, the throbbing at the center of the universe. This sound stirs us and helps us to understand the mystery and power of all things.

FLUTES: Native American flutes are instruments of music, ceremony, entertainment, courtship and love. Some Navajo medicine men say a girl will find irresistible the boy who plays the flute for her. Most traditional Navajo flutes were made from sunflower stalk; today the flutes are evolving into a medium of artistic expression that uses a variety of materials. Jonah Thompson (Navajo) makes all of our flutes.
