Coming back into the arena .. Help please ?

I used to be a fancy shawl dancer when I was younger, all of my regalia was made for me. But my mother's "friend" who had made it, basically stole them & we never saw her again.
I'm coming back into the arena as a N. Cloth dancer & I have many questions.
My uncle is making the T-Dress. But I have questions about the accessories.
Is there anything specific to a tribe ? (I'm Dine' & Dakota)

On a dancer I know I see an awl cases, a knife pouch, a bone hairpipe breastplate, moccasins, leggings, hair ties, a barrette, a choker, a shawl, & a purse .. is there anything I'm forgetting ?
And for beadwork ... what size of fabric stabilizer do I use ?
Thankyou/Ahe'he/Pilamaya

I'm basing this off of what I've seen.

I see women with fans. Some with a blanket or shawl like things that they swing back and forth. A tobacco bag on a belt. I have seen on occasion a beaded knife sheath (with a knife) on the woman's back. Also crowns seem to be pretty popular with that style (at least around here).

I don't know a lot about women styles. Never thoguht to ask about them.

Yes your going to have beadwork (hairties, choker with drop piece, hair accessories, hair band if you want, beaded leggings, ect.) If your dancing northern cloth then I would do some research online with the awl case and pouches you will need or ask help from an elder.


I can also say i've never seen northern dancers wear crowns much, just mainly southern dancers.

that seems like all besides a fan. i would check with yar tribe. there might be a certain type of cloth that you can or cannot wear. like with my tribe we wear a different type of choker than what you see with other dancers.

There's a thread in the crafts section called "pellon." You might want to read that one and see what you can find out.

We're in Indiana....and ladies are NOT supposed to be in the circle w/o a shawl. And a fan of some sort is just handy (esp. on hot days, and as a way to show honor.

I don't get to go to that many powwows...but I do know of at least one event where a lady was not allowed in the ring because of her dress. She just walked in off the street and wanted to walk into the ring. Didn't happen.
