Identification: NMNH Accession No. 0255161; Provenance: It is represented as having been purchased by Captain Pratt, in 1888, for the sum of $1.65. It is of cedar, has been made in halves so as to work out the interior, and is then gummed, put together, and bound tightly by ten different strands of buckskin, which serve to keep it in place. They are each wound three or four times around and tied in hard knots, except that over the vent hole, which forms a bowknot, all the ends being allowed to hang, as shown in the figure. Its length is 18 inches; its diameter, interior 3/16 inch, exterior 1 1/16 inches. It has six finger holes put about equal distances apart and in the same relation to each other as in the white man's ordinary flageolet. The mouth hole is in the upper end and has been carved out of the solid, as represented in the figure. There is little doubt that this is a modern Indian instrument.4; Not Given1; Personnel: Collector and Donor: Capt.
