Photographer's Note

Last April, the Lakota Sioux Dance troop presented a workshop at the High Desert Museum in Bend, Oregon.
Ron Goodeagle, Jr danced the Men's Traditional Dance.

This dance dates back to a time when hunters/warriors would act out their adventures upon returning home. Men's traditional dancers often wear a bustle of eagle feathers. In the traditional dance, the costume is important so the dancer explained his regalia.

On his head is a porcupine roach made of porcupine guard hair and deer's tail hair. This hair is attached to a bone hair ornament so that it stands straight up from the head like a crest. In some tribes, men wore their hair in a scalplock or crested roach style (frequently given the name Mohawk or Mohican after two tribes in which roached hair was common), and the artificial roach was attached to the man's own hair. Ron's hair is long so he attaches his roach to leather headbands. He is also wearing two eagle feathers in his hair and an eagle feather bustle.

In the workshop,you can see how creeping through the grass unfolds the bustle.
