Morgan Tosee
I'd be real interested to see some video of these guys. I'll be searching the interweb today, but if anybody has links or knows of any videos I could buy - then that info would be much appreciated. I'm a Northern Ojibwe kinda guy, but I LOVE the contemporary southern fancy songs I've heard (mostly Sizzortail, Youngbird). Something about them just feels right to me. We don't see much of this in Minneapolis, nevermind NW Ontario.

Would this be the feather "roach" headdress or something different? I have one of these on the workbench as we type. I should take some pictures someday and put em in the gallery, ina.


You know what else comes to mind, I know a lot of fancy dancers from the 70s and couple of them talk about bustle sets made out of deer tail hair dyed and tied to wires and whatnot. Anyhow, I made some and they look really good - but they don't really move, kinda stiff... like a shield. It may just be a BSA thing; I think remember something like this from my scouting days, have you ever heard of this, WhoMe?

I'd be curious to know.
