About this Recording
About this Recording
The Ponca Scalp Dance, called pa’thinge, is a woman’s dance. It’s for the women. According to Harry Buffalohead, “When the men came home from battle, the scalps they brought in, the old women that stayed home, when the men brought them in, they all grabbed those scalps. And then they had a dance, human hair, they danced it like that. That’s why they call it scalp dance. They dance in a circle moving clockwise.”
