  • first dress

    I thought that it was traditional for some to make your first dress. My daughter is five, so I consider it my responsibility to make her dress, mocs, and barrets. Yesterday before we attended a pow-wow here in denver, she thought I would die before I ever finish. another issue is we are Sac and Fox, with no family. My grandma passed when I was six, so I am trying to research some things before I decide her colors or patterns, any help?

      Well Lakotajingler... in Anishinaabe (Ojibway) ways people are given a set of colors that are used for their ribbon dresses, or ribbon shirts etc.. these colors have relation to their name .... anyways thats as much as Im going to say. (lol I hope that made sense)

      No not everyone uses these colors for their dresses. I think personally that as long as a person has one dress with their colors, to use for appropriate reasons.. and to have their other dresses in any pretty colors they choose for more contemporary use.

      I hope that made some sense.

      Some guys are good with their drum sticks.... and some just arent...:karate:

          I've been told it's only proper to have an underskirt underneath your dress. Lately shorts or spandex are the common thing to wear underneath.. do yall think this is something that is approporiate?
