Songs & Stories: An Evening With the Yazzies

Navajo Tribal Nation member Marvin Yazzie and his wife,
Jonette, were raised near Canyon de Chelly in the Four
Corners area of Arizona. A relative, W.F. Coyote, taught them traditional flute-making ways. 

People around the globe play Yazzie flutes.

The Yazzies have been volunteering and supporting The Center since we began nearly 10 years ago. Their annual Native American flute-making and flute-playing workshop with Ernest H. Siva, leader of Dorothy Ramon Learning Center, is still going strong.

Come spend a memorable evening with the Yazzies.
