I am not sure where to begin telling you about my flute making journey…so here goes!
Several years ago I had the privilege of listening to a prairie writer. Having lived and worked in Alberta for several years I was interested in what stories this person might tell. Needless to say it was an entertaining evening however after it was finished I left without so much as introducing myself to him (or anyone else for that matter).
Clock forward almost ten years. I was invited to attend a symposium addressing Aboriginal Education issues and listened to the very same speaker deliver one of best talks I have ever heard. Needless to say I did not leave without introducing myself. We hit it off right away and the rest as they say is history...

"I have six Makwa Flutes now and must say they are an integral part of my flute family. Of the six, Valkyrie (the trumpeter swan) and Ravn (Raven) are two upon which I play my favourite songs for each of my flute performances. Each of the Makwa flutes has their place and story in my shows! I so appreciate the time, personal care and partnership that Stephen puts into his flute making. It is teamwork at its best!"
