    Thank you WhoMe, I was going to mention that before but I never got around to it. I'm not Yakama either but I am Plateau and our tribe also does the Swan Dance. Yes theres a legend to the Swan dance for us too, but I can't (and won't) go into that over the net.
    I have never seen this dance, only heard about it. I bet its purdy huh? I agree with you Kakeeya...there are some thangs you just don't talk about on here for a few reasons. I'd like to tell you I enjoyed reading your posts about the duck n dive. I never knew the dance had that much history and meaning to it. Thanks for that info...I was going to post my thanks to you in that forum but apparently it is closed. Very interesting!

    The Yakama and other Northwest tribes do a different version than the Sac @ Fox. It is equally as meaningful.

    Man! I sure do miss this dance. I first learned how to dance the swan dance with instructions from Chloe Rhoades. That sure brings back a lot of good memories.

    I saw this dance when I was really young and it was done at our Annual Potawatomi Gathering on my Rez this year.......I forgot all about it...I don't see it much anymore up north here.

    Bill Shawnee left us in the 70"s. He knew more different kinds of songs than anyone I ever knew. Powow, Stomp dance, All the social dances...We Miss him and men like him, like Bill Grass and others. It is good to mention those relations names again. everyone thinks these new drums are so great...never heard Albert Waters, Joe Rush, any of the Horse Chief Eagles,(all Ponca) and others really tearin it up in the 60's and 70's.

    Only women dance swan dance. In OKlahoma it was Shawnees, Sac and Fox.,etc. There is also ribbon dance and bean dance. Ottowa powow, and used to at Quapaw. Copan used to have traditonal dances (I don't mean Men's tradtional) Old man Fallsleaf was a singer or at home Bill Shawnee. Great singers no one ever heard of or never made a tape. Not powow stuff though.

    My bro had me help out for one of his show's. His regular gurl was ill that day and I filled in. That is one hard dance to do. I did the best I could, but I felt like a goof ball. Thank goodness the kids didn't know the diference. I'm retired. That's the 1st and last time I'll perform that. There's no need to scare anyone.:dontknow: But Linda Tafoya, Tawny Hale and Starr R. these ladies can jam.:Thumbs
