My instrument is called the spirit caller. My spirit caller is made from wood. I made the pattern and we put the pattern on top of the wood, and my Dad cut it with a saw. My Dad took it to work to drill a hole in it for me.

He put it in his coat and lost his coat at work so we had to start all over again.

I spray painted my spirit caller silver on one side and gold on the other. Then my Mom got some rub-on transfers of fish, feathers, beads, and some leather string at Wal-Mart. I put all of the items on.

The name of my instrument came from a Native American group called the Iroquois. They used it in their peace dance. When you spin it around, the wind catches it and makes a whistling sound. The spirit caller whistles,"Then he may now go to the land of many lodges, sing, dance and be happy."
