2017 Ambros received a SILVER ARROW AWARD
"Come my Son. I have something to share with you.
In the Indian way you have been chosen to carry the flute.
You must teach love, kindness, and spiritual understanding to all people.
You are a special person. You now have a responsibility to our people, to yourself, and others.
You must carry the flute with you all the times, and play your Songs so that all may feel the
joy in their hearts that we feel in ours. Now go, my son, and share the love that is carved
into your red cedar flute. Lila wo waste laka (love is good).
No sound is more sacred to the human ear than the laughing voices of children, teach them well my son.
Lakota, Dakota, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Apache, Kiowa, Iroquois, Cree, Navajo, Hopi, Chippewa,
Shawnee, Delaware, Shoshone, Osage, Ute, Blackfoot, Seminole, Paiute, Choctaw, Cherokee,
all native people and people of all nations we must walk as one.
You've learned well my son. Now take your flute and go out into the world and teach people
of all nations that peace starts with love and must come from the heart.
Mere words are not enough. Be brave, be humble, and above all be a good teacher so that future
generations might enjoy the beauty of living in harmony with one another.
Now go, there is much to be done."
"You can teach someone how to
play the flute, but you can not
teach them how to make it sing."
