HORSE DANCE STICK (approx. 30 inches long)

To the Sioux, a horse was a trusted friend - one he relied on in battle, during hunts and for transportation. Each horse was given his own specific markings, medicine bundles, feathers and special markings for counting coup on an enemy . When a horse died an honoring stick was made and carried in ceremony to honor him. The Horse Society Dance is still performed today
