Apache Traditional Flute-making Workshop

Don Decker was the former Director of the Apache Culture Department of the Yavapai-Apache Nation (YAN) and most recently was the Director of the Public Relations Department at YAN. Decker is an accomplished craftsperson; he is also a fluent speaker of the Apache language.

 

Decker's great-grandfathers, Henry Irving and Captain Smiley (Esmallie) of Camp Verde were Indian scouts for the U.S Cavalry at the end of 1800s in Ft. Verde.

 

Decker will conduct a flute-making workshop here at the museum using river cane collected from the edge of the Verde River. This workshop will allow participants to construct a functioning flute for personal use and learn the basic techniques of playing the river cane flute.

 

The workshop fee is $50, which includes all materials. The workshop is limited to 10 participants and will be in-person at VVAC.
