The Neuse River Flute Circle was founded in 2005 to:
- promote the continuation of the indigenous flutes of North America
- support those who want to expand their abilities to play these instruments and to learn about the body of music associated with them
- encourage the makers and the making of American Indian style flutes
- provide a venue for sharing music and music resources with those interested in indigenous flutes
- cooperate and coordinate with individuals, associations, flute circles, and other organizations engaged in activities similar to ours
- cultivate interest in the “Native American Flute” and in American Indian flute music through educational outreach programs, performances, and scholarly research
- bring individuals together on a regular basis, and in an open and inclusive way, to celebrate and explore the richness of American Indian flute music – all are welcome.
