Its sad that I have to go online to trry and learn these things. I am a Lakota living in Pennsylvania. We do not have chicken dancers out here. I think we have one, but he's not someone I wanna learn from(drugs,alcohol,etc.) So this raises the question,,,how do I go about learning the Chicken Dance? Im just a young'n so I have no transportation to travel cross country. I saw this dance, and I knew I wanted to learn it. I dance round bustle as of now, but I was getting comments about my footwork getting a little to fancy. I somewhat understand the spiritual side to the chicken dance, especially after reading the great origin story that was posted. But I know nothing about the proper ways to make the Regalia. I know so little about this dance, and I wanna learn it in a good way, the proper way. Anyone have any ideas?

Another thing...Aren't society dancers and their bustles supposed to only dance in the Spring Time (mating season?) AND NOT bring thier bustles to TAINTED powwows????

Powwows nowadays are NO PLACE for ceremonious things anymore!!! Small things, yes but nothing more...the circle has been tainted by drugs...alcohol...hatred...jealousy...etc. there is so much confusion because back n the day (when the white man introduced these toxins) we (ALL ndn ppl) lost A LOT of our ways...our men were becoming drunks and our women were traded as whores while the children suffered. So the ******* children that grew up, grew up w/o that straight path to follow and so NOW we have "ELDERS" that THINK and ACT like they know everything about every damn thing...and if they don't...THEY'LL make $h!t up...which is more common than ppl think so b4 u go believ'n ppl...look into how they were raised...who raised 'em...and how they've lived thier lives. If the man/woman was jes an ol drunk that "recently" woke up and smell'd the coffee, and now is an "ELDER" and is leading ppl...be sure they're doing it FOR THE PPL and NOT to make THEMSELVES "famously holy" n the circut. Don't get me wrong, I respect all of my Elders but to me, u have to EARN the right to b an Elder...any fool can grow old...but REAL wisdom and knowledge goes w/o recognition...so the next time u hear someone preaching around on the mic about this or that...THINK about what they're really saying and why they're saying it...so yeah...SOCIETY DANCES DON'T BELONG IN THE POWWOW ARENA...there is a place and a time for all things...IF U PUT A # ON AND COMPETE FOR $$$$$ then u can kiss that "Society" goodbye...one can't get more tainted than to put his Society belt on and go compete for fame/glory/money. It's a new age and a new day, I believe the chikk'n dance has become too darn political and ppl shuld just DANCE and HAVE FUN DOING IT!!!!!!

...If a man can put on a SACRED jingle dress (which was/is a SOCIETY DANCE), and dance around all slutty/disrespectful like, then ppl can dance chikk'n...either way, we'll all get a good laugh outta it...right?

Prairie Chicken (Grouse) Dance

Maybe people get so confused about this dance because Turtle Island never had chickens. They were brought in by the Europeans. The bird and the dance that we so love is the Prairie Grouse and not a chicken at all. And since the Prairie Grouse is such a wonderful winter survivor, why wouldn't both Nations, Cree and Blackfeet, admire, respect and learn from it? What is really sad is there are no more Prairie Grouse (at least in the wild) in Manitoba, Alberta or anywhere in Canada. Maybe at the powwows, instead of putting out prizes for best dancer, the money should go to restoring those beautiful birds back to their original habitat.

Prairie Chicken (Grouse) Dance

Awesome film! Apparently there's several species of prairie grouse and your film is of one of the cousin species to the Greater Prairie Grouse which really booms and hollers. I guess the Prairie Grouse, like the People, has several dialects and Nations. Skennen'kowa! Go (or should I say Dance?) in peace!

Prairie Grouse ("Chicken") Dance

Dear Grace Old Elk -- Nice to see your post! How about a photo or movie of you dancing to honor these wonderful birds? http://www.powwows.com/gathering/images/icons/icon6.gif

I am making a medicine bundle for a dear friend's daughter who will be one month old in 2 weeks and ready to survive in the world. I'm putting 4 designs on it based on the Prairie Grouse dance bustle so she'll know to be strong and beautiful in each of the four seasons of life.

When you dance the dance, what is most meaningful to you? What is your favorite part of the story/teaching?

thats my personal input on the subject.
While I agree about sharing the celebration part of your statement and taking pride in being a part of this beautiful group of original descendents of this land, I think there are some things that we need to respect as a part of a certain tribes customs and heritage,
Sure we can all party together with the commaraderie that was not present in the creation of our people hundreds of years ago, but we need to keep some things within our own tribes, thereby honoring those of our ancestors who paved the way for us to live the lives we do now. Some things are sacred to each of our tribes and there should be that respect to leave those things as they were meant to be.
It happened to the native peoples of Europe. Once their lives became more civilized and each country established their own set of customs, the rest of the world sort of put them all in the same category and in doing so, some of their true customs and the resulting pride of togetherness was lost.
While I would like to say this should not be allowed to happen to our civilization, I think we all know it is too late to believe this will actually happen.

And yet the Euro is worth more than the dollar and they're all still individual nations...

old thread....interesting read.......i saw chicken dancing getting big last few years....thought it was new at first but my mom assured me it was an old dance coming back...she said they used to do the small chicken bustles without all the neon and stuff......and the girls used to cluck at them when they danced by for intertribals and the chickens would scratch, peck and all that in front of them...that had to be late 50's early 60s when my mom was a young teen
