Douglas Spotted Eagle is a Grammy-winning American musician, noted for his live and recorded performances on the traditional Native American flute, sometimes accompanied by either traditional Navajo (Din?) singers and instrumentalists or a modern band. He calls his music "modern ethnic", as it mixes jazz, new age, pop, and world beat with Native American music. Spotted Eagle received a Grammy Award for his production of Gathering of Nations Powwow, and along with numerous collaborations has released 13 albums under his own name.
He has been building flutes since he was 12 years old, and he performed traditional music as well as being a guitarist for a popular rock and roll band after his family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. He is married to a Din? woman from Valley Junction, Iowa. Spotted Eagle currently lives in rural Utah, and works for youth anti-drug causes, as well as recording and producing music.
Douglas is also well known in the field of video production and writes regular articles for VAAST and tours doing training for Sony Media Software.
