    Sorry but that's not an artifact. Just an somewhat unusual rock with a hole that coincidentally makes a sound when you blow on it.
    You need to take the time to study what actual native American hardstone artifacts look like, and how they were fashioned and formed using primitive techniques such a pecking, grinding , drilling, polishing etc. Native Americans made very purposeful tools and adornments that leave one without any doubt they were fashioned by human hands.
    There are lots of wierd naturals rocks out there to fool us with natural holes and odd coincidental shapes but once you spend time learning about various classes of artifacts it will become much easier for you to discern rock from artifact. Keep up the hunt!

      Making a drilled hole in a rock whistle is a one in a thousand shot.... try it.
