Nick Brokeshoulder's newest Palhikwmana. Butterfly dancers appear in a social dance called the Butterfly Dance in English.  This is held in the early Fall for the benefit of the harvest. As a reminder of the importance of family ties her dancing partner is always a relative. The headdress is made by the male partner/relative as a gesture of thanks, since the women are allowed to ask the men to dance.  Her long hair represents the fall of gentle rain. Symbols of clouds, rain, lightning, the sun and rainbows, even corn are used in the tablita or headdress. 26 inches high and 22 inches across. $1000. (SANTA FE)
