Your Spirit a Voice"
American style flutes
are handcrafted with care and loving attention, in the tradition of
the Plains Indian "Love Flutes", completed with one-of-a-kind hand-carved
three-dimensional totems completed to your specifications.
double-chambered flutes were traditionally played by the Plains Indians.
The Native American flute was used by men to court the women they loved, and for this
reason it has also been given the beautiful name of the "Love Flute".
These flutes are now played and appreciated by both men and women.

you are a beginner or a practiced flute player, you can play a Native
American style flute easily. Novices will find that within a few minutes
they are producing beautiful music.
Why? Because a Native American style flute has no "embouchure" like a metal flute, and no reed like a woodwind
instrument. So with a gentle, straight blow, you can get a beautiful
tone, right away. This makes the Native American style flute a great gift for someone who would like to learn to play music.
makes Cedar Spirit Native American style flutes unique?
All our totems are hand-carved and are fully 3-dimensional
(Most Native American style flutes on the market today have totems
that have been mass-produced on a bandsaw, making them a simple silouette
of your totem.)
All our Native American style flutes are tuned to key on a chromatic
tuner - many people bring me flutes by other makers that have
simply dreadful tone and I have to retune them. For details of how
our flutes are tuned, see
How our flutes are made.
All our Native American style flutes are carved from ancient fire-killed
cedar that have died naturally - more
about the Trees that give life to our flutes
our totems are consciously created - From the very beginning of
Cedar Spirit Flutes I noticed a dramatic difference in the ease and
flow of my carving when I asked the Spirit of the animal or being
I was carving to come into the wood.
Since then I have become very aware that each and every living thing
has a spirit, an angel, an energy - call it what you will. When I
take the time to tune in to that energy the carving flows so easily
it is amazing. I like to think of this as carving in four dimensions
because there is definitely spirit in each of these pieces; I consciously
and lovingly invite it in. You will feel - and hear - the difference
that the Cedar Spirit makes.
two totems are alike - each is an individual work of consciously created
art. Your totem will be unique to you, and made especially to
your specific requests - at NO extra cost.
can be custom carved to your own personal totem animal or spirit
- Your own personal objects, such as a small crystal, can be incorporated
in your totem design.
All our Native American style flutes are hand-finished with organic linseed
oil and beeswax.
- Native American Status and respect- I am not Lakota. My mother's side of the family 'the Gallants' are Acadian with Metis many generations back. I don't claim Native American status. I do live close to the earth, walk lightly and leave as small a footprint as I can. The wood I use for the flutes comes from fire-killed old growth cedar trees right here on the land I live on. I use the whole tree and am very grateful for the gift of being able do something I love, and feel good about to support my family.
carved totems are INCLUDED
in flute prices.
flutes have been crafted with love and care in the heart of the Kootenay
Mountains of south-eastern British Columbia, Canada.
