Our Day Care and Camp had a special visitor recently. Melissa is part of the Mille Lacs band of Ojibwe tribe and regularly dances in the Mille Lacs Pow Wow. Her great grandmother and great aunt sewed her jingle dress and did all the bead work on her headband and belt- which took well over a month to do.
Her dress weighs a little over 12 pounds.
Thank you for sharing this part of your culture!
