Native Americans dances were used during celebrations of Marriages, birthdays, and other gatherings, but in the 1920s and 1930s Native American religious dance was outlawed in the United States and Canada. During this time the Tribes had to create new dances that could be performed in public. In the late 1920s a new dance style called Fancy dance appeared, it was created by two young boys of the Midwestern Ponca tribe. Fancy dance is very energetic and colorful and it was a hit with the audiences. In the late 1930s women began fancy dancing wearing the same regalia as the men, but Women's fancy dancing declined during the 1950s. A decade later the dance reappeared as the Women's Fancy Shawl dance.
Today Fancy dance, Woman's Fancy Shawl dance along with traditional dances like the Grass dance are perform at Pow Wows across North America.
In the image the dancer is wearing a mix and match fantasy costume instead of the normal regalia, the shawl is a dynamic cloth but it lacked a fringe. To create one I used Wings 3D to extruded every other edge to make this simple fringe.

Wow this is absolutely stunning. The colors and realism of her outfit look so wonderful against that vibrant grass. And the amount of time it must have taken to piece the elements together to make that lovely fringe...! Gorgeous work and I appreciated the explanation about the dancing. How ridiculous that Native American dances were outlawed?!

her face morph does not look like Lena's, but is better. very natural skin and she is gorgeous. great choice of clothing
I lived 10 miles from a small city where they held a PowWow each year, but I never went. my almost full blood Native American friend did not go much also. I know my son(Cherokee) has never been to one. the closest he has been is to the clinic for Native Americans
