Flutes in the Village

Flutemakers Marvin and Jonette Yazzie honored Ernest Siva by presenting him with a special flute. It is made of alder and has a bighorn totem, in homage of Ernest's work in saving and sharing the Serrano bighorn sheep songs. Ernest is possibly the only person singing these songs right now. He is teaching the songs to his grand-nephew Isaac. We have received two grants to help in this work. Read more about it here.
We thank talented artist Lisa Patencio for this YouTube video:
