C354 American Indian Dances
Issue Date: August 16, 2012
On August 16, 2012, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued six new stamps featuring American Indian Dances. One of the most spellbinding dances to watch, the
Fancy Dance combines beautiful costumes with acrobatic turns, spins and splits. The Raven Dance is the manifestation of the raven legend. This handsome bird is an important mythological figure
to many Native Americans. The Grass Dance gets its name from the braids of sweet-smelling grass in the dancer's bustles and the dancers' tendency to sway back and forth like prairie grass
bristling in the breeze. The Butterfly Dance is always a ceremony celebrating youth, fertility and the beauty of the natural world. For the Traditional Dance, dancers often wear full face-paint,
animal-skin headdresses and bird-wing attachments at the shoulders. In the Hoop Dance, the performer moves a dozen or more hoops over and around his torso, arms and legs.
