Kickstarter campaign a success because of friends like you!
We are elated to announce that we met our Kickstarter fundraising goal in May, which means we'll be able to finish the project this summer and make it available to the world by early September without having to sell more personal property. Seriously, Gary has been selling flutes and Native American jewelry from his personal collection and Matt recently sold a tandem bicycle to help pay for Ongtupqa.
Friends, family and fans have stepped up to contribute over $10,000 through Kickstarter...which is a tremendous help in finishing the @ $12,500 project. All of us are extremely grateful for everyone who has contributed funds to support this important endeavor. It's not just about producing a CD or DVD -- Ongtupqa tells an important chapter in America's history. And it's the first step in helping an ancient collection of flutes return home.
If you contributed to Ongtupqa, kwah'kwa! And if you missed the Kickstarter campaign but still want to help, consider pre-ordering a copy from the Store page.
