Many, many thanks to Leta!!!!!!!!!! You are the most wonderful Sister to my Family!!! You have planted a seed by becoming the Keeper of the flute called "Snowfox"....... Because of you, his spirit will live on in little Creesong's new dog which she calls "Sparki." We will always remember that it was you who brought this sweet creature into our lives. THANKS SO MUCH LETA!!!!!!!!! He is tiny, but fearless!!! :))))

Instrument Grade Poplar Flute is keyed to F# - my dished finger holes - so comfortable this flute will become an extension of yourself! Approx 23" in length, a slightly turned down mouthpiece which allows you to hold the flute in a more comfortable position during extended play. Loud, Crystal Clear voice is so AWESOME you will surely Love the very moment your breath enters the flute's spirit! Tuned to absolute perfection using Virtual Strobe @ 72 degrees for studio recording!!! Signed, dated, titled, and numbered.

Per the Indian arts and crafts board I must state the following: Friends, you are viewing an Authentic Swampfox Creation carrying the Swampfox trademark & I am the sole maker of these flutes and totems. From the time I was 7 years old I knew I would build the flutes. They are Native Inspired thru my Grandmother's people of the Muskogee Creek Nation, but more than that, they are inspired thru the Great Creator of all living things. Many times as I stand before the wood, I have no idea what the flute nor its totem will turn out to be. Sometimes in life we must ask in earnest prayer for the answers, even to the smallest of things. As I pray for Creator's wisdom and not my own, it becomes clear in my mind what is meant for these flutes, and it is a powerful presence when this Creator's wisdom moves. If it is important for you to purchase a flute from an enrolled tribal member, it is my prayer that you find this flute you are seeking. Remember, according to the Indian Arts and Crafts Act, {an act in place to protect the consumer from purchasing items that are not 100% AUTHENTIC NATIVE AMERICAN MADE}, should even the slightest part of an instrument, or craft be created by a Non-Indian person, the instrument / craft CANNOT Legally be sold as "Native American made", including ANY art work in any shape, form, or fashion. For a first criminal offense, an individual is fined not more than $250,000 and/or jailed not more than 5 years; subsequent violations are not more than $1,000,000 and/or 15 years. Good night!!!!!! A person could make a lot of flutes in 5 years!!! :))

Origin:

For thousands of years they have been recorded in the form of cave art, totem poles, carvings, pottery, and ancient stories!

Many would say, "If there were prehistoric birds or flying monsters in this world, people would have seen them by now".......

Well,,,,,,,,,,, they have!!!

If you spend any amount of time in the wilderness, you have seen something in your lifetime that you are unable to explain, and truly find hard to believe.

Twice in my life I have seen birds appearing to have a wingspan larger than any known species in existence.

Hundreds of sightings are reported each year, and more than twice as many are never reported at all. There is not enough room to even begin to list the documented cases of these sightings here, but I will list a few.

Years ago a friend in the mountainous area of Barnsville, Ga., swears that more than once he saw a bird with the body size of a man gliding over the large oaks in the valley below.

Another, who has spent over 30 years exploring and fossil hunting, recalls the day some 10 years ago when he also saw two creatures the size of a man perched on a mountain less than a mile away. When one of them suddenly jumped off, it's huge wings spread out to 20 ft and appeared to be larger than a small aircraft!

These were not normal birds - for sure out of the ordinary, and it was fear that gripped this man's spirit, as he felt that these creatures could easily carry him off if they wanted to.

To this day there is nothing on modern record like it!!!

Leading scientists and cryptozoologists believe that what people are seeing are surviving Teratorns or Pterosaurs, or what Native Americans have always called Thunderbirds.

Whatever people are seeing in the skies, it is real. Natives have often spoken of the Thunderbirds, and all over the globe we have these giant raptor-like birds continuing to make their presence known into modern times. Researchers have noted the giant birds seem to ride the wind currents following the prevailing weather systems which start in Mexico and flow to the northeast, through the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys up into the Appalachian Mountains. It comes as no surprise to hear that modern sightings are in the same places where many Thunderbird Legends originated.

If we didn't have the fossils which clearly prove in recent past the existence of these large flying creatures, many would never believe that such an animal could have ever lived.

The remains of Teratornis have been found alongside human bones & artifacts. It is likely that the First Nation people of North America knew this bird as the Thunderbird. It is said these creatures were predators and many of the Thunderbird legends tell of these birds carrying away humans as prey.

As outlandish as it sounds, many researchers believe that pterosaurs could still exist in remote regions of the world such as the Kongamoto of the African Congo and that on rare occasions could possibly appear across America and throughout the world. As researchers show people of the Congo pictures of pterosaurs, without hesitation they exclaim, "Kongamoto."

While a 24 passenger plane flew over a mountainous jungle region of Brazil in 1992, everyone on board witnessed a pterosaur which almost had a collision with the aircraft. The creature flew so close along side the craft that everyone was able to clearly described it as a pterosaur.

A more recent sighting in which the witnesses were convinced they'd seen a living Pterosaur came from Perth, Australia in 1997. A couple taking an evening walk observed a creature flying some 300 feet above them, which had wings shaped like an elongated triangle, reddish-tan leathery looking skin with no visible feathers but possibly covered in scales, and a body shaped like a torpedo. The couple watched the creature for several minutes, and they claimed it glided without flapping its wings while they watched as it slowly flew to the south along the coastline.

Be careful playing this flute around your spouse!!! Some say the large crest of these birds were most likely displayed to lure their mate. Without a doubt, it's a Love Flute if there ever was one!

Woooooooooooooooooooo Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :))))

The Legend of the Thunderbird has become a reality in this Swampfox flute.

You will never regret becoming its Keeper. If you look & listen each day of your life, you will always find something different in this flute.

My Love to each of you!!!

In Spirit,

Swampfox
