I've been learning jingle for the last 11 months (since January). Since then, my mother passed away in May. From what I was told I am not supposed to dance in the arbor for a year, as this is my time to grieve.
Before she passed I had not started my regalia but am doing so now in prep for this year to pass.

So heres the thing. I am planning on having my initiation/giveaway at my reserve's annual summer powwow in August. But I am learning both old style AND contemporary. The regalia that I am working on is contemporary style.
Is it proper to wear a traditional jingle dress for my initiation and to dance old style for this? Or would it be ok to dance contemp and wer my contemp style dress for my initiation?

And if you are supposed to wear a traditonal dress for your initiation, am I allowed to dance at other powwows in my contemporary dress before my initiation?
Why don't you just dance in between the two styles. You are making too much of a deal. Ask your people.
