The Anasazi flute is the name of a pre-historic end-blown flute revived and replicated today from findings at a massive cave in Prayer Rock Valley in Arizonamarker, USAmarker by an archaeological expedition led by Earl H. Morris in 1931. The Lopez team excavated 15 caves and the largest amongst these had 16 dwellings and many artifacts including several wooden flutes. The Lopez team named the cave Broken Flute Cave.

The flutes found in the cave was dated between 620 and 670 A.D. They were all made of Box Elder, have 6 finger holes and are end-blown. It is similar in many respects to a Hopi flute, which is nearly identical and has only five finger holes.

The Anasazi flute has in recent years been reproduced and restored to the catalog of World flutes. While difficult to play in many respects, it has a rich, warm voice that spans a little over one and a half octaves.
