Fancy Dancer Collection Navajo Jewelry CollectionFancy Dancer Collection

The owner of this jewelry, RT, was a 100% Sac and Fox Nation member who was an avid fancy dancer. Fancy Dancing is loosely based on war dancing but considered appropriate to perform in public. Today fancy dancers perform at many powwows across the North American continent and the world. A big part of powwows are the craft tables and tents that members set up to sell items they or other family or friends have made. RT was a fancy dancer for many years and she also had a booth at powwows. When RT passed away, her family was left with the items from her many years participating in powwows. After gifts were shared with her 6 step children and 11 step grandchildren, we purchased the rest and offer it to you.

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
