Honoring the People: Men's Fancy Dance

Fancy Dancing started as a form of entertainment for non-natives. It does not belong to any one tribe and is now done all over North America with some differences in dress and style in the north. Dancers must have a great deal of agility and stamina for the jumps and twirling involved. The men typically wear two bustles of bright colored feathers with added ribbons, feather or horse hair hackles and bright arm and head bands repeating the colors and patterns. A headdress roach trimmed in colored horse hair and eagle feathers are designed to spin or rock with the movement of the dancer with the aim being to keep up this constant movement throughout the song. Coup sticks are also carried which are decorated with ribbons and feathers. This was a small stick which originally was taken into battle by a warrior. It was considered a great sign of bravery to touch rather than kill an enemy with this stick. 21 tracks include both northern and southern drums. Elk Whistle, Rose Hill, High Noon, Blacklodge, Northern Wind, Red Bull, Sweet Grass, Battle River, Fly in Eagle, Blackstone, Star Blanket Jrs, Eyabay, Pipestone Creek, The Boyz, Wild Horse, Painted Horse, Little Island Cree and Wandering Bull.
