The Flute

     
 

The Flute

The right to carry the Northern Cheyenne Flute was given to Phillip by Spiritual Leader Lee Lone Bear and the right was given to him by Grover Wolf Voice who was a Flute Carrier among the Northern Cheyenne.

The Flute performance is incorporated into the presentations, with the sharing of the Flute Story as was told to Phillip. After the story, Phillip encourages the audience participation by closing their eyes and visualizing the story, while he plays the flute.

The “Flute Story” shares the message of “Finding your Gift in Life” and tells the story of a woodpecker that was frustrated and angry because he could not make beautiful music like the other birds, the only thing he could do was put holes in trees and carve wood. The story goes on to share how the woodpecker found his gift in life and how unique and special he was.
