Question Grass Regalia

I have seen many pictures of grass dancers wearing breastplates and im wondering can I wear one? I'm a teen dancer. (just checking.)

Question Grass Regalia

My daughters' friend says:

"If your talking about breast plates that have bones then I have never seen a grass dancer wear breast plates.

Now what you may be seeing is fully beaded Harnesses with the beadwork that goes all the way down to thier knees, and every grassdancer wears a harness with a matching belt.

But I am not from up North I am from Oklahoma and here they don't know what traditional grass dancing is anyway."

I have never seen a breast plate on a grass dancer. But I agree with Sikooroomom, all though most of the harnessess I see up here are longer then the knees, many nearly to the ankles, and when asked to make someone a grass dance regalia thats how long I make them too.There is one dancer from up here (I live in Ontario) who doesn't wear a harness, he is older, my guess is 60's (never asked him his age but from conversations thats what I'd say) and his regalia is beautiful, very Ojibway with floral beadwork on velvet and he wears bandolier bags instead of the harness, he says he never had a harness...I asked a few years ago.

A long time ago you'd see it alot where men would wear bone breast plates. today, many grassdancers still wear them but generally the drop style breast plate.

Never ever seen breastplates on a grass dancer. Where did you find pics of this? Would love to see.

I've seen it more than a few times - just keep in mind that the grass dance didn't always have all that fringe, and it wasn't always yarn and ribbon. You can check in the FAQ for more info if you like.

I just scrolled through every image in the "Grass Dance" category in the photo section here and I was surprised how many I saw that had them. As @ndnsooner said they for the most part are the drop style.
