Women's Northern Traditional
Women's Northern Traditional is the oldest style of women's dance. The outfits have become more contemporary, often using modern patterns and bead colors. Most dancers wear partially or fully beaded moccasins and beaded leggings tied just below the knee. A long buckskin skirt is normally worn, with a fully beaded buckskin yoke. The yoke has long buckskin fringe that hangs down below the knees. Usually, a breast plate will be worn over the dress and a choker may be worn around the neck. A belt is normally worn, with a saltillo/bag set attached. A beaded purse and a flat fan are carried, and a shawl is draped over one arm. Beaded hairties, and sometimes a fully beaded crown are worn.
