  • Pieces to feather dance set

    Hello Everyone. I grew up attending dances a few times a year with my grandparents and me and my brothers enjoyed feather, or fancy dancing as we called it. My cousin is interested in getting back in to the tradition but I'm afraid none of us will be able to continue using the regalia we grew up with. My grandfather built each set for us back then and taught my cousin how to do most of the bead-work and crafting part of it. However I have searched online extensively for a diagram that shows what is all included in a fancy feather dancer set but I have no luck. Would anyone here be able to provide me with a list of what is required so we can get started?
