  • Can Grassdancers dance the Chicken Dance?

    Yesterday at the Pow Wow, I was dancing the Chicken Dance in my Grass Regalia (I was pretty good, If I can say so). I keep hearing mixed messages on the Chicken Dance. Is the Chicken Dance only for Traditional Dancers?

    Let the Chicken Dancers Chicken dance. Sometimes at a pow wow, Chicken Dance songs will be sung for Grass or even Traditional. So it happens.

      Hypothetical question (requesting hypothetical answer):

      If a straight dancer travelled to Blackfoot country and they stuck him in the traditional dance catagory and sang a chicken dance song . . .

      Do you think he would be a chicken to chicken dance?

        To Chicken or not to Chicken

        Well, as a grassdancer, I have danced to chicken dance songs during contests. In my mind, chicken dancing is halfway between grass and tradish dancing. It has elements of both dances in it and but yet has it's own style. So with me, I can dance the chicken if it is sung for me but other than that, I leave it to the chigg'n dancers to do the chigg'n dance. AHO!

            :rofl2: Good one

            Another question.- If a smoke dancer did the chicken dance, would that be "smoked chicken"?

            Yet another - If a young Slick dancer did a chicken dance would he be a "slick chick"? :duhh: ever cheap! Go back to bed, Kiwehnzii.

                *laughing* or if a chiggin dancer dances tenderly is he then a *chiggin tender*?




                I don't dance chicken when those songs do because I don't know the history or the songs really. But I don't think i'm being dissrespectful when I walk off. I hope I'm not.

                  Adding to the nonsense . . .

                  If a chicken dancer, licked his lips while his number was being taken and all the judges scored him with first place votes . . .


                  Would he be . . .

                                Undoubtedly, Chicken (Prairie) Dancing is becoming more popular coast-to-coast.

                                I have seen Navaho, Comanche and Lumbee chicken dancers.

                                Anybody wanna' venture out and explain this dance? Perhaps the who (tribe/s), what, where, whys and how?
