Jingle Dress Dance

Jingle Dress Dance
This dance originated with the Ojibway Tribe (the Nishnabi), and is a ceremonial welcoming dance performed only by women.
Jingle dancers wear knee-length dresses with rows of metallic jingles sewn to the fabric. Dancers must follow the beat of the drum and make their dresses jingle with the lightest step. This dance is also a healing dance.
