Fancy War Dance
Fancy dancing is patterned after both the northern and the southern traditions and allows
for the maximum individualization. It is also a demonstration of individual stamina. The
elaborate regalia features feather bustles, one at the top of the back and the larger one
at the bottom. Headdresses are topped with one or two feathers mounted in rockers which
move back and forth with the motion of the head to the beat of the drum.
