  • Specific steps?

    I've never taken part in a smoke dance. Think they're awesome and I would love to jump in but I am always unsure if there is a specific step that I gotta do. Once the drum picks up I noticed everyone has their own style but I notice theres a certain similarity there too. I usually just let my feet do what they want in an intertribal and do my own thing, but is there a specific guideline to follow in the smoke dance? Thanks!

    Dancing in an Intertribal
    by Ladyhawk316
    Would it be permissable for a "white" female to dance in an intertribal if there is a call from the MC for everyone to come and dance?
    Should that person be smudged by sage before entering? (I would feel very uncomfortable if I wasn't, but that is just me.)

    Why?

    Why do you dance Jingle instead of another style? What makes you choose this style of dance instead of another?
