Dances and Traditions
  • The sun dance was a very important ceremony for the plains Indians. It always lasted for at least several days. Before the ceremony the Indians would fast. The camp was set up in a circle of teepees. A tree was cut and set up in the center of the space to be used for the dance. Ropes made of hair or leather thongs were fastened to the top of the poles. Men tied these ropes to sticks which were stuck through the flesh of their chest or backs. The men danced, gazing at the sun, whistling through pipes, and pulling back on the ropes until the sticks tore through the flesh.
medicine bundles and pipes
Medicine Bundles and Pipes
  • They carried bags of animal and bird skins, pipes, dried herbs, and tobacco. They believe these objects to have special powers. Two of the most important bundles were the pipe bundle and the beaver bundle. The beaver bundle always contained the skin of a beaver along with skins of other animals. Some had feathers of birds, rattles and other objects. The bundles were used for healing and opened at certain times such as when the first thunder was heard in the spring. The pipe bundle contained tobacco to be used in pipes.
