    princess,


    And to go one step further...

    If the purse was made from a BIG snapping turtle shell, the lady could give it to her man and he could use it as a shield - in the men's traditional dance contest! (You know, how some couples use the same fan to compete?) *L
    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

          Couldn't you simply honor his memory by keeping his shell in a special place, maybe wrapped in some special fabric? Purses get a lot of abuse...and that way you don't have to worry about offending or whether this is right or wrong. That's what my daughter did with "Happy."

            Just leave the special turtle shell purse at home where it can be protected. Don't worry about dressing by a certain tribe since you're not Indian.
            Make you a nice shawl to dance with during intertribals. Seems to me like the most sensible thing to do.
