  • Ojibway style

    I apologize for my ignorance but someone was asking me this past weekend and I honestly didnt have an answer.
    For an Ojibway dancer, would he dance Northern Traditional? Is the way he dresses different? How?

      Although most dancers nowaday look just the same as Nothern traditional, the traditional Ojibwe isn't like Nothern Traditional at all... no bustle, no shields, none of that stuff. You should be able to find pics in both Anishtradish's gallery and my own. Think dark colored clothing with floral beadwork and you pretty much have the idea.

      Inbetween old school and contemporary is a middle school style, which involved a sort of "Sunday's best" clothing with aprons, bells, and maybe a vest or sometimes a cape. Headdresses tended towards a more loose eastern stlye rather than the ar bonnet, and brimmed hats were not at all uncommon. This is my personal favorite look, esppecially with two bandolier bags, aprons, and a loose headdress - very sharp!

      I think Anish's reglaia is a great looking mixture of old and new influences; his vest and apron are an old school style and his bustle is small and round, which is the first style of bustle we adopted over here on the west side of things. My own style follows a similar look, but with applique instead of beadwork and a shorter vest.

      The Minnesota Historical Society also has some photos of old time folks available on line - try searches for ojibwa, chippewa, and ojibwe.

              gonna take me almost a year or two to make my bandolier bag.



              sookout sh'nob nailed it though. I think Northern Traditional, as we know it today is just a blend of all of our different styles all combined in various ways. It would be pretty hard to try to associate Northern Traditional in general as originating from a specific tribe.

              here's an old video I like watching........

                sorry, think I butchered the spelling on that title. I do want to say a big Thank You to all the Anishinaabe out there who shared their knowledge on here. I'd love to head up to the Lakes country to Pow wow. I hear great things about it. If any of you ever head down to Oklahoma, let us know. You'll always have a place to stay at our camp. Again, thank you for the sharing of your own traditional clothing

                        wow I really like that water panther on your jacket. I was gonna work one into my bandolier bag somewhere.


                        You don't see underwater panthers much any more. dunno if people just forgot about them or what. Mishipizhiw :)

                          The only time its too late to start dancing is when you're dead.
