    Like in the men's dances when they have a ruffle dance. The women can get them now but you do it different then the men. Some girls scoot their feet really fast on the ground and do spins. I on the other hand I learned from two men's fancy dancers to do your moves during that time. Its all up to the dancer on what you want to do. But basically its like a mens ruffle song. The men's Fancy and Tradish do it.
    Get up and get out!

      Shake song

      Yup yup yup! Its almost like a sneak up/trick song. When the quick beats are going at the beginning, you scoot your feet in fast small steps and bring out your arms real high like your flying. When the beat picks up, then you dance regularly but you gotta stop on time at the trick stops. :p

        Smoke Song Starts - Then What?
        by Historian
        My question is: What to do when a "Smoke Song" is sung during a formal Hethushka Dance Ceremony?

        I had learned from Ponca men such as Harry Buffalohead, Joe Rush, Sylvester Warrior, and Abe Conklin, that the smoke song was originally sung in ancient times as a prelude to all...

        Meaning behind the song
        by Wyawaqacumen
        Dear brothers and sisters!

        I would appreciate hearing your thoughts when you hear traditional music. How do you feel when you hear the music? What makes you feel that way? Do you understand your tribes songs? If so, would you be willing to share the meaning with us?
