  • Eastern War Dance

    I am from western Canada, and I would like information on the Eastern War Dance? My family are Montaukett, but have no experience with eastern culture. Can someone fill me in on the Eastern War Dance?????
    1. What is the required regalia?
    2. What is the dance judged by?
    3. Does the dance follow a particular beat/temo, as I have seen it on YouTube danced to a couple different tempos.

    Anything you can tell me about this dance would be greatly appreciated.
