Colorado Alabaster

The Jingle Dress Dance originated with the Ojibwe tribe in the early 1920’s and has grown in popularity as a competition for female dancers to affirm the power of Native American women, celebrated in present day pow wows. The dresses are designed with rows of rolled up metal snuff can lids and as the women move, the bells clink against each other and make an enchanting rhythm. This Jingle Dress Dance Belle is mentally preparing herself for a performance at Cheyenne Frontier Days Indian Village.
