  • Accessories/Hand Items

    Hope everyone's week is going well. I was interested in seeing what Traditional dancers are carrying as accessories these days, especially up north. At the few powwows I have been to lately, I have seen the usual beaded sticks, fans, and shields. Was just wondering what others are carrying. Thanks for your time.

        items carried

        When I dance I carry my shield, wing fan and beaded stone warclub.
        At break, I switch to carry my Eagle foot dance stick.

          Fan Questions

          I'm wondering about fans.

          As far as Gourd Dance is considered, do they have to be the loose style, or will a wing fan suffice?

          I did my research and think my search function is not working.

          Thanks for your input!

          wing fans?

          What do you think of wing fans? I've seen them being carried by a variety of dancers, including straight dancers. What types of fans do you all use? I prefer a loose fan with eagle feathers...

          What kind of fan do most of you dance with? Around here I see mostly eagle tail flat fans. Just wondering if that is what everyone uses.

          A new question to ponder, is it appropriate to make flat fans out of Macaw feathers? Since the Native American Church uses them for spiritual reasons.

          I am not recognized and I have been told by some dancers that it's a better alternative to eagle.

          Tail stick and tail fan

          There is also another question I wanna ask all you southern straight dancers out there. Why is it I go out to powwows and see the southern straight dancer carry TWO taildancer canes and some times See a dancer carry TWO tail-canes and TWO fans. What is the significance on that. I'm not gonna mention...
