  • A Jingle Dancers Feather

    Hey all fellow jingle dancers, this is my first time here and I am also very new to this whole computer thing so please bear with me. I am quite excited about talking to other dancers and have a question that I would appreciate some feedback on. I've noticed that many Jingle Dress Dancers wear their feathers quite differently, some down and some straight up. also some wear the down feathers while some wear the regular feathers. I would be interested to know what and if there is any tradition on how a Jingle Dress Dancer should wear her feather, or is it like so much of other regalia items, in that it all comes down to personal likes and choice.

        Jingle dancers in their 40s 50s... Do they differ in their regalia from the younger generation?

        I would appreciate your comments.

        by sarah_09irish
        Before I ask my question, I just want to say that it is great to be a part of a Native American forum! Well, my name is Sarah, and I've recently started dancing in the contemporary-style jingle dress category.

        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,...

        Wearing feathers
        by chibi

It's a large feather, about seven or eight inches long with nice bit of plumage at the bottom. I know jingle dress dancers don't traditionally...

        I have been wearing a red tail hawk feather with my jingle dress that my uncle found and gifted me. I was told this weekend that jingle dancers wear only eagle feathers. I was never taught this so I was just curious if this is a detail that I wasn't taught or if I was misinformed. I was also told that...
