The Eaglewing NZ story ... my imagination, your reality.
Eaglewing Flutes NZ
WELCOME to the enchanting world of Native American-style Flutes.
My flutes are individually crafted to the highest standards in my Palmerston North workshop.
Created particularly for those who want an affordable flute that looks and sounds great - my instruments won't break the bank, but can take their place with pride, I believe, alongside the finest available, offering you an instrument to be treasured for a lifetime. Feedback from seasoned, highly-regarded players overseas who have bought my flutes, confirm that belief.
Why Eaglewing? To Native North Americans the eagle has always been a powerful spiritual icon. It is the great bird that soars to Creator Spirit, carrying the prayers of the people. In my own Judeo/Christian heritage, we are told "... those who hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they will soar aloft as with eagle's wings..." (Isaiah 40; 31). My home, New Zealand, was also home to the largest eagle to ever exist, the Haast's Eagle, which sadly, went extinct some 600 years ago.
So I seek to honor my home, my heritage and most of all, the First Nations peoples of North America, whose unique traditional flute design has evolved into today's instruments, which I am privileged to make and play.
May an Eaglewing Flute bring you joy and satisfaction as you make your musical journey.
