More about Darren Thompson
Darren Thompson is an educator, public speaker, journalist, and Native American flute player from the Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe Indian Reservation in Northern Wisconsin.

His career as an American Indian musician began with a burning curiosity of a nearly lost instrument – the Native American flute – while an undergraduate at Marquette University. Within a short time he became a sought-after concert musician who shared both traditional American Indian flute songs as well as his original compositions at colleges and universities throughout the United States. He has shared the stage with many award-winning musicians, artists, and talents giving him the inspiration to thrive as an artist.
