Native American Pow Wow: Jingle Dancer

The Jingle Dance is performed by Native American women, and its origins began with the Chippewa tribe. Traditionally, the jingles on the dress were made with tobacco cans, but today they can be made of other tin materials. The dancer carries a feather fan, often made of eagle feathers, and wears a feather headpiece.
