  • Jingle Dance DVD

    My daughter is interested in jingle dancing. I would some advice on how to get her involved with that. She is nine years old. Also, I would like to know where I can find DVDs on jingle dancing, if there are any. Thank you for any advice anyone can give.

    what tribe are you from? ask your aunts, gramma's etc...on how your tribe does things, it means more than posting for a DVD on-line, and it will help your daughter understand the signifigance of the dance to her family.
    yeah, yeah, yeah...

    ...never underestimate the power of stupid people in groups...

    If quizzes are "quizical"...What are tests?

      How to respond without resorting to an inferiority debate...well, I am Dine...or Navajo. We do teach her about OUR traditions. The jingle dance is not from our people. That is why i'm asking. I realize it takes more a FRIENDLY request for advice on how to get started. For busy people like myself, a dvd or an instructional book is a start. Please do not assume I'm not passing down important values of my people on to my child. I only asked for advice on something I'm not familiar with. I am fortunate that my Grandmother help raise me and I was raised with her knowledge of the past. My child is lucky that she is the only great grandchild to see her alive. My Grandparents have passed. Anywho, all I want is friendly and respectable advice. Thanks for your um advice..

            Thank you so much for the advice. Also, you don't come across as a "know it all". You're a nice person with good advice. I appreciate that. Also, thank you for not passing judgment on the fact that I was not familiar with Jingle dancing. I have seen women perform and it is very beautiful. I teach my child about the diversity of cultures and the importance of each and every one of them. I am happy there are people out there willing to give good advice. Thanks again for the wonderful advice. Have a nice day :) .

              Very good response Witchy. I learned that the Jingle dress is Ojibwe-originated but is for all native nations and must also have the respect it deserves.

              Irma, you sound like a very respectful person. I know your daughter will wear the dress well when she is ready.

              I'm no authority on it but there are others here who can help you.
              In fact, there's an Ojibwe girl living down your way who, (if you run into her) could possibly help you out.

              She posts on here more than occasionally.

              Good luck.

                Thank you for responding and your suggestion. Yes, I try to be respectful of all people. I strongly believe in the quote I used. I hope the person you are referring to responds. I want to support and encourage my child in her journey to become a jingle dancer. Thank you once again. Have a nice day. :)

                          There is a video available in the powwows.com store. The makers of it do not currently offer dvd. It is an excellent video for the beginner. It has nice outfits to see and inspire the creative part of you. I think your daughter would really like seeing all the pretty dancers in all the colors and as she grows she will pick up more and more of the dialog. ;)
                          This is life, and I'm lovin it!
