Jingle Dance Pow Wow Regalia on Display at the Charleston Antique Mall
Artist, Laurieta Carter, is presenting her impressive display of Native American children's ceremonial regalia at the Charleston Antique Mall in Las Vegas. Carter, a member of the Las Vegas Paiute tribe, has been making Pow Wow regalia worn in ceremonies and dance competitions for about 13 years. Carter says that along with the movements and precision of the dancer, the regalia is part of the judging criteria in dance competitions. The Jingle Dress shown in the photo is predominately turquoise and yellow. The metal cones, made from tobacco can lids, create jingling sounds as the dancer moves.
The Fancy Shawl and the Grass Dancer Dress are also shown in the display with many other Native American ceremonial regalia Carter made by hand for her four children. The display correlates with the 100 Years of Fashion Exhibit at the Charleston Antique Mall, 307 W. Charleston Blvd. in Las Vegas. Open daily, the free exhibit runs through April 18, 2009.
