  • Old Style Jingle - Headband or not?

    I'm new to old style jingle. Been dancing Southern Cloth for years.
    Making my new dress and set for jingle now and I'm wondering do any old style jingle dress dancers wear a headband? I have a velvet set and wondering can I wear a beaded headband or would that look stupid?

    I don't know about old style jingle. It does not matter if the jingle dress were old or new. Some jingle dancers do wear their headband with single feather. Other jingle dancers just wear their barrette with single feather. So I think you can choose whatever you want to wear on your hair. Oh, you can make braids (you have to find someone to do the braids for you) with the headband or without it.

    Beside the tradition of wearing the jingle dress for jingle dance is for some girl who had been sick or not well. But no matter if you are sick or healthy, you can still dance the jingle dance.

    Other jingle dancer will chime in about that. I had watched them performed their jingle dance at traditional and competition powwows.

    Good luck with your new jingle dress.

          Okay, I have heard a lotof talk lately about the change in the way Jingle Dress is changing. Women who were considered "contemporary" a few years ago are now being seen as ol'style in a way. A lot more dancers are, in some opinions, dancing too wild for this style of dance. No longer focusing...

          by IndianWoman3000
          Since eveyone has an opinion or knowledge of jingle dress dancers, here is my question.

Should there even be a jingle dress competition,...

          purses

          Yes is good to carry a purse when jingle dancing for the tobacco, etc etc. In northern Canada there are many elder women jingle dress dancers and many belong to a jingle dress society. They all carry a purse or bag of some sort.
