There's a lot of folklore and stories about the round dance of the Plains Cree. Also called the tea dance and braid bundle dance, the question is whether it is a fairly modern part of Aboriginal celebrations or as ancient as time itself.

The first known round dances took place in a long lodge called nanapawnikamovikamik, or "night singing tipi," as part of small tribal camp gatherings.

The braids of deceased relatives, kept in sacred bundles, were central to the meaning of the round dance ceremonies, which also included pipe, food and cloth offerings for the spirits of the dead.

Special honor songs were sung and prayers offered as the drums were passed through the sweetgrass smoke. A young sappling was set up in the centre of the lodge to be hung with cloth offerings, and a large stone is placed at its base.
