If you don't see what you like here, you can visit my booth at an arts/crafts show in your area, (see show dates page), call (520)322-9811 or write firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. I have many more flutes to offer and can custom make a flute for you as well. For example, if you'd rather have a regular flat end on your flute instead of the bologna cut that I usually make, just drop me an e-mail and I'll make your flute flat on the end. No extra charge.
All LC Flutes are natural colors. The JT Am flutes are stained pine. Each Laughing Crow flute is graced with at least one turquoise cabochon. If you're looking for a great beginner Native American Flute be sure and check out the Jonah Thompson Navajo flutes and the new BackPack Flutes if you don't want to take your prized wood flutes out into the field.

Free Native American Flute Music. A "Thank You" for visiting my website and for all the people who patronize Laughing Crow Flutes. This is the link to the new tune "Morning Song" by Laughing Crow.

The terms "Native American Flute" and "Indian Flute" are used to describe the style of flutes and music that I create. It does not imply that the flute and/or music is made by a member of a Native American tribe. Actually, I am, as most of you are, a "Native American". This is due to the fact that I, like so many of you, was actually born in America. I also have Cherokee blood in my ancestry. However, as a non "card carrying Indian", in order to comply with mandates set down by The Department of the Interior I have included this disclaimer.
