  • to dance or not to dance!!

    At a traditional pow wow when tobacco is offered for a healing song, do you jingle dress dancers think this is correct protocol? And would you dance? Where I come from, that is the teaching and proper protocol I have learned from elders and ceremonies I have attended.
    What do you think if a jingle dress dancer refuses or makes a scene?:Shocked :Argue

    I think it is the jingle dress dancers responsiblity to accept those request because that is what the dress is for to heal and in my opinion when some ask you to dance for someone sick you would have to have a pretty small heart and a big azz ego not to do it. I think it would be pretty disrespectful. Just my opinion:Eyebrows

        i absolutely agree! if you have that dress on you are saying to people and Creator that you are commited and willing to dance healing dances for any who ask. those who refuse should be confronted by an elder and told that is not the way and if it happens again take the privilege away. our elders need to step forward in these cases and handle them in our ancestorly ways. cougie
        it takes few words to tell the truth and a lot of them to tell a lie..

            Rights to Jingle?
            by WhoMe
            If someone makes and sells a jingle dress, are they also giving the right for the buyer - to wear and dance in that dress?

            If you buy a jingle dress, do you automatically have the right to jingle dress dance?

            What if the dress maker is not Anishinabe Kwe?

            Can and Should?
            by WhoMe
            Can a jingle dancer who is not Anishinabekwe give someone the right to do this dance?

            Should someone take it upon theirselves to do this just because they are a well known contemporary jingle dress dancer?

            Should a nonAnishinabekwe who is ~quote "respectful, think...

            Should jingle dress dancers have a competition?
            by IndianWoman3000
            Since eveyone has an opinion or knowledge of jingle dress dancers, here is my question. If Jingle dress dancers are supposed to be about praying and only certain people should be jingle dress dancing, then how do you judge a good jingle dress dancer? Should there even be a jingle dress competition,...

            I have heard different versions of when this dance originated.

            Some say it's origin began in pre history.

            Some say it began in the 1800's.

            Others say Maggie White is the original jingle dress dancer.

            I have also heard the original jingles were...
