  • Fancy Feather dance

    Hi,Every one

    Fancy Feather or Fancy War Dance is a style of dance some believe was originally created by members of the Ponca tribe in the 1920s and 1930s, in an attempt to preserve their culture and religion. It is loosely based on the War dance. Fancy dance was considered appropriate to be performed for visitors to reservations and at "Wild West" shows. But today, fancy dancers can be seen at many powwows across the nation and even the world.

        I believe it was created by aliens in an alternate universe where up is down and down is over there. Your dance team advisor is really smart.

Is this term in common usage...
