The original Grass Dances were held by members of elite warrior societies. Dances were held for the benefit of tribal members. Among them are the Omaha Dance used by the Sioux, the Hot Dance by the Crow, Dakota Dance by the Cree and the Wolf Dance from the Shoshone and Arapaho. The Grass Dance gradually evolved into the Pow-Wow. The celebrations were social until the 1920's when "contest" dancing became popular. Grass Dancers wear yokes, breech cloths and anklets covered with strands of brightly colored yarn. The grass dance is noted for its fluid movements and sliding steps.
