    Boozhoo!!!

    I am a member of the local NAIA organization here in Memphis, TN (a primarily cherokee, chickasaw area) and one of maybe three Ojibwe. I am also a participant of as many pow wows as I can go to, and I would like to know, if possible, what the Ojibwe Straight and Traditional Dance regalia looks like. Is there a place online, where I can obtain pictures and possibly pattern so that I can ensure my regalia honors not only the Ancestor's, but also the Ojibwe Nation. Also, is there a location as to where I can find a way to learn the Ojibwe dance steps to the above mentioned dances (Straight Dance and Traditional Dance)

    I have traced my ancestry down to my great grandmother Bertha G. Johnson (Tyler) and would like to show my family and ancestors respect and honor as well in my dances.

    Currently, I wear leather leggings (with knee bells), breechclout, chocker and moccasins. What if any, else would I add to my regalia??

    I have found that crazycrow.com has Roach kits and Bustle kits, however I have yet to find a place where a picture of Ojibwe regaila is easily seen.
