Biography



Title: Grass Dance
Type: Mixed Media

Grass Dance is one of the most ancient dances to survive into modern times. Some say the swaying movement of the dancers is a gentle expression of prairie grass on a wind-swept day. The fringes and ribbons enhance the graceful movement of the Grass Dancers' bodies as they sway in an imagined breeze keeping rhythm with the drums.

Some Indian people think this dance also symbolizes the warriors' celebration of victory over an enemy, the braided grass representing the scalps of the fallen foes.
