Flutes, Made by Ken Custalow

Description

These flutes were made by Ken Custalow, a skilled wood craftsman and member of the Mattaponi tribe. Various types of wood were used, including red cedar, black walnut, and apple.

Ken noted that he could tune a flute to the desired pitch but preferred to let the instrument "find its own voice."
