  • sneaky jingledress dancers

    ok, this might seem lame, but what do jingle dress dancers do during the Sneak part of a sneak up?

    During the sneak up, I've noticed that the jingle dancers in Crow Creek South Dakota dance along side the women's northern traditional dancers in the same fashion. Or, they can do their moves along side the fancy shawl dancers but I think tradition dictates that dancing along the women's northern traditional is best.

      I'm a woman Northern Traditional dancer and during the sneak up songs, when the drum stops, we stop dancing and wait for the next verse or push up. I believe all the other ladies do the same thing, just wait for the next push up to dance again. :) Hope I understood your question and answered appropriately!!

              re: sneak up

              A long time ago..only the men dance, b/c it is like a warrior's dance...and then the fancy shawl dancers would join in..but since jingle is fairly new..it's at your discretion..sometimes I do but the northen style traditional women's. or just let the men dance their dance..

                Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

                  sneak up?

                  I just stand on the side until they're done, or I just go sit down...

                    Pardon me, but is this an actual advisement from your elder? Do you realize what the sneak up represents? It is required that when there are eagle feathers in the arena, especially when it's men's northern traditional, all are required to stand in respect of our forefathers. Now, are you willing to change our traditions?

                              I apologize for my misjudgement call. But who do you take your words of wisdom from? Who is your advisor? I don't mean to pry but you seem to want to change everything and that is your perogative but look at mother earth for when we die and decompose it is mother earth that will comfort and engulf us all.
