Another returning favorite Aquilla Rosetta (Becky Mockingbird) is a  Native American flute player and was authentically trained by Kona Foster J. Kalama of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation in Central Oregon. Aquilla shares her treasured fluites, and tells us of their significance.
