Can anyone from these tribes confirm this?
I'm not 100% for sure, but I would put money down that our old traditional form could be derived from an original style - and that the original style could have been very much like the grass dance elsewhere; where the grass dance is often credited as being the original dance that the traditional style comes from.

So maybe our traditional style is/was grass, like on the plains. I'm not sure, but it would fit.
