Detail of the Jingle dress, designed and made by Tinker Schuman, Lac du Flambeau poet, beader, pipe-carrier, tribal elder. Her Ojibwe name is Eagle Woman.
The 365 cones are made from Copenhagen snuff can lids (tobacco cans). The jingles made from lids have a heftier sound than the tinkle of pre-made cones. The eagles on the dress help identify the artist who belongs to the Eagle Clan from Lac du Flambeau, WI. "The Jingle dress is a healing dress. When you're dancing you think of people who are having hard times, and pray for them".
