Washboards in cloth?

I saw a woman and a girl both carrying washboards as they danced at a powwow two weeks ago. The washboards were painted with designs on the top. Does anybody know the story behind these? I've never seen them before. Are they something new or something brought back into the arena?

I've seen posters advertising washboard specials or old-style scrub specials.

Poster 49th Annual Sac & Fox Powwow

2016 Meskwaki Veterans Day Powwow Article

Never seen it in person, but I've seen a bunch on the internet.

Black Hills 2009

Hunting Moon 2010

It's been discussed on here a few times, as well.

Ho-Chunk Applique

It's also discussed, albeit briefly, in Crag Harris's book on modern Native music:

Heartbeat, Warble, and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music

And Lita Matthew's book:

Powwow Summer
windanncer and Broken Arrow like this.

I appreciate all the resources you have posted. We used to have good dialogue on Powwows.com. I miss it.

I saw the washboard I was referring to in the Black Hills video you posted. I have seen this style of dance in Wisconsin, Iowa and Oklahoma but never have seen an actual washboard used as a prop until recently.
