Native American Flute

      The Treasures of Time.net productions support the Native American heritage                                       

    The tone or pitch of ancient flutes was determined by the size of the tree branch from which it was made along with the spacing of the holes. The early flutes were made from the juniper family of trees including cedar. Today flutes are made of these same woods plus cherry, redwood, ash, walnut, spruce and many exotic domestic and imported woods.
