Fancy Shawl Dance
Fancy Shawl Dance Mt Kearsarge
Early in the 20th century, when Powwows were being organized as non-ritual gatherings of Native Americans, the Shawl Dance was created for women.  Unlike the historically quiet, demure dances for women, the Shawl Dance gave women a chance to wear more colorful, elaborate clothing.  Over the following decades, Fancy Shawls became more elaborate and the Dance became more energetic and athletic.  Today Fancy Shawl Dancers resemble butterflies with their bright outstretched ‘wings’ as they twirl and leap around the dance circle.  Because the Fancy Shawl Dance originated during the modern Pan-Indian time, it has always been considered an Inter-Tribal Dance, not associated with any individual Native American tradition.
This Hooded Cape has a Native American vibe. Very soft, very pretty. Whether simple or fancy, most women wear them or carry them on their arms.  Fancy Shawls feature high-quality fabric or ribbon applique along with colorful fringe.
