David Sanipass

National Geographic Feature

David Sanipass My name is David Sanipass. I am Miqmaq (today known as Micmac). I have been making and playing Native American Style flutes for about 30 years. My Grandfather taught me how to carve flutes at the age of nine. As a child, I would sit with him for hours to watch and ask questions about the art of flute carving. It can take from 5 to 20 hours to carve a flute. I harvest all the wood and make many of the tools myself. I do not use any power machinery. I use mostly lightning struck white cedar. Once the cedar tree is struck by lightning, the wood crystalizes. It is this result that gives the finished flute a unique sound and tone. I also make a "sweetgrass" flute (displayed here). This is traditionally a Grandmother's or woman's flute. While this flute is played, the player as well as the listener is soothed by the light fragrance of "sweetgrass" with each note.

If you have any questions concerning me or my work, please contact Wild Wind Creations, or write to me at this address; Davis Sanipass P.O. Box 75 Gouldsboro, ME 04607
