        That dress should be in a tribal museum where the dress and dance originated from. It shouldn't be placed online where it could be bought by someone who doesn't understand its significance and would misuse it. If anything at all, it should be somewhere that the dress could be properly cared for and used to educate people, preferably in a tribal museum. Seeing this dress on Ebay is about as bad as seeing a pipe put up for auction.
        That is really sad.:(

          So do you think buying this as a Powwows.com community and donating it to a tribal museum would be worth our effort?

                    Take into consideration too that someone (non-n8tive) could have made the dress... in that case, it don't mean a thing.... and i think straightdancerinaz is right... people buy jingle dresses all the time... and no one ever raises a stink about it so, what's the deal with doing in now... besides, they're never going to sell it for that much...no way, no how...

                      Yeh all ya's have good points, but looks like whoever did the beadwork, really studied Ojibwe floral... looks "authentic". Either that, or they traveled into the future and ripped off my new dress. lol..... jk... but yeh ya never know what really happened with the dress, I know my great grandparent's house was looted in the early 1950s, something like that, alot of their stuff was taken, alot of stuff that could be on eBay.. "authentic Ojibwe antiques". lol... it's kinda sad tho' when I hear my mom talk about it cuz she remembers all the stuff that is gone.
