History of the Jingle Dress

What is the History of the Jingle Dress? Do you know?

I have heard the creation story of the jingle dress, but there are many different variations of the story too?!
Why do you raise your fan?
Why do we wear plumes?
When did jingle dress dance become?
How did we go from raising our hands to using fans, and wearing plumes?
Why do we use tobacco lids? Why not someting else (significance)?
I began thinking of these questions, wondering if we as jingle dress dancers know the answers to these question? I went to a dance and self expression presentation and all these other dancers all have the history, reasoning of movements, etc..and made me think of the jingle dress dancer?

Just a couple thoughts..tell me what you think? Share the knowledge...;)
