"Winter is an etching
Spring a watercolor,
Summer an oil painting and
Autumn: a mosaic of them all."
- Stanley Horowitz
Nanomonestotse is an autumn celebration of peace, observed within some Native American families. The word nanomónestôtse (pronounced NAH-noh-MAH-nay-STOHT-say) means "peace" in the Cheyenne language.

This instrumental starts out with a simple frame drum pattern which continues throughout the entire tune. The Native American Flute is accompanied by an ensemble of fretless bass, acoustic guitar, strings and a special Roland D-50 patch I created ages ago: "FluteHorn".
