  • fan/no fan?

    hi..i was talking to one of my friends who is a jingle dancer from originally minnesota living in ohio...but anyway...
    the reason why so many people have never heard of jingle dancers wearing no plume/fan is because that is actually from the Great Lakes...in Minn. the custom there is (if i'm quoteing this right) you can have a fan and a pouch but no plume...
    plume's for jingle dancers are more contemporary.....there are times where i do wear a plume and times i dont, but most time i dont b/c with the plume you have to have the right kind and right color of barrette that matches with your jingle dress..and so on...........well all ya ladies know the drill.. but with both areas
    great lakes & minn. area the jingle dress is still the same...with being very plain and maybe some lite beadwork/embroidery....but nothing flashy..

    I've learned that if you're going to dance old style jingle, you don't use a fan, and you don't wear plumes. You have a purse in one hand on your hip, and the other hand holding a scarf on your other hip. On the honour beats you lift your scarf like you would a fan, but not waving it or anything, lol.

      looks stupid!

      sorry i don't agree with the raising the hand thing!!!
      I never seen that before until a couple of years ago, the first time they had that special in Hinkley! I'm sorry and don't mean to affend anyone but i think that raising your hand looks stupid....Have u ever seen Maggie White or any other ogitchitaagweg raising their hands?????

        I agree on that one.. also if you dance old style i noticed more often than not.. no purse.. just hands on hips.. sometimes scarf in one.. right usually and no plume .

          Personnaly I love dancing old style as well as contemperary,
          alot of times when we are just doing exhibitions I do old style and I have had many people and drummers come up to me and tell me how cool it looks doing old style especially on side step. I do not use a scarf I just raise my hand. But what makes it look good is the delicate, soft way you do it. It is almost sexy.

            I don' think I had ever seen anyone dance "traditional" so to say in the Jingle section.
