    Years ago I brought my mother-in-law to Havre for her first pedicure and the gal who worked on us was working on her daughter's first jingle dress.  She was from the Chippewa Cree tribe and explained that it wasn't part of their tradition but that every girl wanted a jingle dress for the pow-wow.   I felt bad because it took a long time to finish the pedicures and she said she had only finished 100 of the jingles.  If she had them with her we would have twisted them while we waited.  I wish I could have seen the finished dress.
