      Not entirely....Should let the senior Ladies that know answer !
      I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


      They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

      There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

      Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
      It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

          So as I understand it, it just has to do with the singing only, not any style significance of the dress. Thank you.

                (*In the interest of fair disclosure, I don't dance - just make regalia.*)

                There is more to it than the song style.

                Most northern ladies don't 'walk' around; they dance in place, bobbing up and down on the balls of their feet. They may slowly turn to face each of the directions. They get a nice coordinated movement to their dress fringes.

                Southern ladies step delicately in time to the music, moving around the circle. They too try to get nice movement to their dress fringes. The step is very light, and not too wide.

                Of course the regalia differs. Ladies buckskin is one of the dance categories where individual tribal clothing styles are very persistent. Northern and southern dresses are, to my eyes, quite different.

                Northern dresses tend to have fully beaded yokes. The moccasins and leggings differ. In the south, you will see certain tribes/folks with boots, rather than a separate legging/mocc. The design of the purse and the belt items differ. In the southern outfits there tends to be less overall area covered with beadwork.

                The back drag is different. The northern breastplate hangs to the knee or lower. There is no -- for lack of a better term -- counterweight/back portion. The southern lady's breastplate hangs to roughly mid-thigh. There is a back portion that is nearly the same as the front.

                There are a bunch of other difference in clothing that have to do with individual tribal styles.

                      Thank you, I love the drum and then I believe at the end was that the honor circle? with the dances? I most likely wrong. I just know from dancing that at some Pow Wow's they do that.

                        Yes this was a great help, I knew about the breast plate but did not know I can make a pattern to match my leggings. Thank you.

                          .

                          Pretty much region specific. Like Round Bustle.

                            Midnite Express singing Southern Style
                            by powwowroad_49
                            2 weekends ago I saw Midnite Express sing a two-step song and a regular southern straight song. Let me tell y'all, Midnite can JAM southern songs. THey sounded [email protected]$$ when they did. I personally think that Midnite enter a southern singing contest just once.

                            Questions For Ladies Souther Style Dancers
                            by Lakota Wiyan
                            Recently, at our tribes annual, we had several Southern Style dancers, both men and women, as well as three Southern Drums (yaay!). The committee decided to hold a special contest for this style of dancer, to show case them, because MOST of our elders never leave the rez, and dont realize the differences....

                            Question about bow-ing
                            by Tootie_SweetSthrn
                            Okay, Now I've Been To Many Pow Wows In Which I Contest In, But There Is Always Something That Seems To Confuse Me. And That Is If It's Appropriate To Bow When The Heartbeat Of The Drum Comes On In A Northern Song. I Mean Sometimes I See Other Southern Dancers Bow, But Other Times They Just Keep Dancin'....
