Walter Ahhaitty: Oklahoma Style with<br>Comanche Little Ponies

Gourd Dancing is performed by some Southern tribes (Kiowa, Comanche) and occurs before the Grand Entry, when the drum sings gourd songs for the dancers as they dance. Only Gourd Dancers may dance a Gourd Dance, with regalia consisting of a long sleeve shirt and pants, a gourd sash or vest, and a rattle. Dancers stand around the outside of the arena and shake their rattles and lift their heels with the beat of the drum. When the song then reaches a point, the dancers slowly dance away from their spot. Gourd Dances are usually held in sets, with about three or four songs a set, after which people will take a small break. The Gourd Rattle used in pow wows is not a gourd but a tin or silver cylinder filled with beads on a beaded handle. There are many fine rattles that are peyote beaded around the handle with white horsehair tufts on top of the rattle.
