A 55 minute documentary on the history of the making, playing and revival of the Native American Flute, through the words and flute collection of Dr. Richard Payne, who has been collecting, studying, making and playing these flutes for over 60 years.

Special appearances by Carlos Nakai, Douglas Spotted Eagle, Mary Youngblood, Nino Reyes, and many others; over 600 rare photographs, hundreds of flutes, and seldom-seen archival footage from as early as 1892 bring the flute to life. Includes the old flute players from before the revival such as Belo Cozad, Abel Big Bow, Richard Foolbull, Doc Tate Vevaquaya, etc.

Shows the development of the flute from the early Hopi end-blown flute through its development into the typical Native American double-chamber flute.
