What is a smoke dance?

For those of us who live in the west, will someone please tell us what the smoke dance is, why it originated, and who can dance it? Thanks!

Anyone can dance it.. the iroquois develope it from our old war dance although I heard it originated with the tuscarora.... it's a contest dance. You know, it's easier for me to give you this link and let you read and hear the music because I don't have the time at the moment to write it all out and pretty much what you want to know about it is on this site...

I was thinkin' the same thing, but I've seen that guy before somewhere. Maybe video footage of GON 2001? I don't have a .RAM reader, so maybe that is what BB wanted us to view/hear. Blackbear, you haven't been taking money in exchange for posting ads again, have you?

This is the origin I was told of how this smoke dance came to be

I know theres more than one story of origin out there but this is the one I was told by a very knowledgeble person he told me that this dance comes from our old time war dance that came from the Osage people now this dance was done before they went to war. We don't go to war no more so we use these songs in some of our other ceremonies such as our thunder and rain dance where the dancers dance this old dance. Now they use to do alot of shows along time ago and they would do this dance and show them the war dance or some people would also call it the scalp dance. They wouldn't use any ceremony songs they would either make up new songs or they took songs from some of the social dances that we do and changed the beat so it was appropriate for this dance. Some where down the line someone came up with the name smoke dance. Now when you see the dancers dancing you'll see various different styles theres old style and now a days alot of dancers are coming up with their own style which is alright because this is what was done along time ago thers no right or wrong way to do this dance its all up to the dancer! I hope this helps out.

yup this is my understanding of how this dance came about !......i know of so many knowledgeble longhouse men and elders who have said the same thing!......also !...some made up stories to go with the name of this dance!....but those stories were just made up for the show ! and so all the non-native peoples would say "awww so thats why they called it that"..LOL

I first heard of the smoke dance when i was watching a program on PBS about 10 or 12 years ago.
It was a show on the Native American dance theater and they were going around to various areas in the country trying the different dances.
They had an old film showing men from the 30's doing the smoke dance...
Then the program showing them doing this dance and the stomp dance and others.
They described as a dance that young men would do to move the smoke out of the long house long ago then later during the 20's and 30's it was revived as a pure social dance with no ceremony attached to it....

Thumbs up

I love to watch people smoke dance! I live on the east coast and many of the powwwows I have attended in upstate NY and Canada have smoke dancers. I have seen a few girls smoke dancing also. Is this common? Or are males usually the ones to dance this style?

Talking

Are there any male smoke dancers that grass dance or traditional dance, as well?

Are there any smoke dancers that didn't have a category to enter, so they had to dance with the grass or traditional category?

Hmmmm?


Any chance of combining all three categories and having the first:

"WORLD'S CHAMPIONSHIP 'TRADITIONAL-SMOKE-GRASS' DANCE CONTEST?"
