The World's Best Jingle Dress Songs
A great selection of jingle dress songs from some of the best drums today!
The Jingle Dance comes from the Ojibwa Nation. It was popular from 1920 to 1950 and is currently experiencing a strong revival across the nation. The Jingle Dress is made from a fabric such as cotton or taffeta and has numerous "jingles" attached to it. These jingles are made from snuff can lids. The distinctive sound they make represents waves of water or thunder and is good luck because it scares away evil spirits. Moccasins, leggings, beaded or conch belts, neck scarf, bag and an eagle tail or wing fan completes the regalia. Jingle Dancers are judged on their grace and traditional footwork.
