"The sound of my flute carries through the forest like a dream." Cedar Spirit customer Ressa Cook

The Story of Cedar Spirit Flutes

I am not Lakota. My mother's side of the the family 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.
"I had 10 years background in woodworking, but no carving experience. A friend brought me a native flute one day. I thought it was pretty amazing, so I tried to make one from a piece of birch firewood, and I finished it off with a coyote totem. People saw the flute and asked me to make them one like it. The rest, as they say, is history.

"The carving comes so easily to me, perhaps because I approach it with such reverence. I invite the spirit of the totem animal to come into the wood, just as I invite the spirit of the ancient fire-killed cedar I use for the flute body to come into the world and share its music."
Spring Shine


Our flutes have been crafted with love and care in the heart of the Kootenay Mountains of southeastern British Columbia.
