C.S. Fuqua

C.S. Fuqua is a professional musician, writer, and editor. As a multi-instrumentalist with an interest in indigenous instruments, he began researching, crafting, and playing the Native American flute in the early 1990s. His flutes now sell worldwide, and he has produced several albums of meditative Native American flute music. He has written two books on the history, mythology, and crafting of the Native American flute—The Native American Flute: Myth, History, Craft and Native American Flute Craft— that are popular sellers worldwide.

Popular mythology portrays the Native American flute’s historical purpose as a courting instrument used only by men, but the courting aspect was only one minor function of the flute, much like a guitar or any other instrument, and it certainly was not an instrument limited strictly to men. Both women and men played the native flute for entertainment, in fertility rites, during celebrations and mourning rituals, and simply as a distraction. WindPoem albums celebrate the flute’s rich and inclusive heritage.
