  • any northern dancers?

    Most of you seem to be southern dancers. Are there any northerners out there? Although we also dance for the same reasons, our outfits seem to really differ.

            Yep I'm Northern and have been for all my life! I have buckskin beaded dresses but I also have a shell dress that I wear and also wing dresses for when I need something lighter.

              Northern Tradish dancer

              I'm a Northern dancer. I have cloth and buckskin. I'm in the process of making a wing dress with applique when the hot hot summer days are upon us again......whewwwwwwwwwwww, I can already feel the sweat. I'm making the dress with the same pattern as my beadwork so I don't have to make new beadwork too.

                I mainly dance jingle but once in a rare while I dance cloth. I have a Northern ribbonwork outfit. When I finally finish my fully beaded yoke dress, I'll also wear that.

                    Tribe

                    Hi,

                    I'm Chippewa/Cree, also from Montana. I am married to a Blackfeet from Montana also.

                    A wing dress is similar to a T dress but the sleeves are more in the shape of a wing.....hence wing dress

                              I dance Northern, too. Hello ladies... :Wave

                              For now, my top is made of cloth with some applique work.. and hide fringes. Hopefully, by August/september I'll have my fully beaded top done. :) I'm also working on a matching T-dress for the hot summer sun. Cutting out the pieces is taking long tho. BUT oh well... I can't wait till this summer.
