About the Yazzies

Marvin Yazzie, a Navajo Nation Tribal member, and his wife Jonette were raised near Canyon de Chelly in the Four Corners area of Arizona in the small town of Lukachukai.

The traditional ways of flute making were taught to them by a relative, W.F. Coyote.

Yazzie Flutes are known for their clear singing tone. They are sold in stores throughout Utah, Arizona, California and Oregon, including the renowned Heard Museum Shop in Phoenix, AZ. They are played and enjoyed by thousands of people throughout the world.

Yazzie flutes are also played by professional flute players Raven Longbow, ElkWhistle, Windwalker, Illari, Fernando Cellicion, Scott August and ethnomusicologist Ernest Siva.
