BUT WHY AMERYND
Just as ‘French Horn’ is the name of a musical instrument, so is ‘Native American Flute’. The name does not imply that the instrument was made by an enrolled-member of a tribe federally recognised by the United States Government anymore than ‘French Horn’ implies a person with French citizenship made it. However, American lawyers, native or not, have got at this so that makers who are not so enrolled have to use the term Native American ‘Style’ Flute. This is clumsy and legalistic and based on the racial politics of the United States of America [see: Law and Racial Qualifications]. So, Tony Morris has invented the word ‘Amerynd’ Flute as a cover all ter.m. The ‘y’ is pronounced as in ‘rhyme’, or the Scottish word ‘Wynd’. He used it for the first time on the Guerrilla Pilgrims Album packaging.
