Horse Dance Stick


The horse was very important to the Lakota people; it was an ally on hunts and a comrade in battle. In tribute to a special horse that had died, its owner would create a horse dance stick to carry in society dances to honor his lost companion. The horse dance stick is a uniquely Sioux artistic form. Traditionally, the owner would carve the horse’s head and hoof on the stick and use actual hair from the fallen horse as mane and tail.

the Horse Dance Stick, to honor a loyal horse companion.><>
