#220 Traditional Dancer


There are many different types of dancing done by Native Americans. This picture is of a traditional dancer, also known as a warrior dancer. Traditional dancers sometimes paint their faces. The face paint represents a warrior’s own personal achievements. It is also used by tribes, clans and societies to identify members. The paint is also used as spiritual protection. Face painting was also used psychologically, to promote fear and hesitation in one’s enemies. Traditional male dancers tell their stories of hunting and stalking their enemies, through the movement of dance.
