All flutes are handmade by design, with elegant sound, and pristine quality. Making these musical instruments is a passion for Mending Heart Music, and we love to pass the beauty on to others. All flutes are made of the highest quality, but affordable. These flutes can be used by the most experienced or someone who is just learning of their beauty.
Karolyne Rogers, a counselor from Coeur d’Alene, has been coming to Encampment at Agnes Vanderburg’s camp for 16 years. The first six or seven years, she paid her dues and helped. Then she began teaching. Rogers heard a man named Bob Two Hawks, a Lakota, play the flute and “got very interested in playing the flute.” Then Two Hawks became ill and was dying. “In his dying process, he taught me to make flutes and asked me to pass it forward,” Rogers said. “I asked him ‘Bob, have you noticed I’m white?’” she said, laughing. Rogers said the process of learning to make the instrument was more important than the outcome, and she stressed that with her students.
