Handcrafted Wooden Lakota Love Flutes made in Australia
The Native American flute has been reported to be the third oldest known musical instrument in the world, with bone flutes dating back over 60,000 years. Traditional Native American flutes are known by several names, the most common being love flutes or courting flutes.
As the name suggests, they were flutes played in courting rituals - by a young man serenading his intended bride. Generally, they were played for no other reason, although some men are known to have played them for their wives as a sign of love.
