Healing Dress Dancer features a woman in a “jingle dress,” which has metal cones sewn to the garment that jingle when the dancer moves.
Dances performed while wearing the dress are believed to generate spiritual power generated from the sound the cones make as the dancers move with the rhythm of a drum. This dance is often rendered as a healing prayer, danced on behalf of a family.
