On Sept. 27, 2014, The White Shield Dance Team held its sixth-annual White Coup Costuming Workshop. New Braves and veteran Tribesmen were encouraged to attend, were they were given instruction and guidance on costume construction. White Coup Society members of the White Shield Dance Team and its leaders provided help on costume building from knee bells and headbands to more complex items like beading and hair roach construction.
Over 50 boys and adults attended the workshop.
The White Shield Dance Team’s Sixth annual recognition banquet followed, where boys and adults were recognized for their participation and support of the 2013-2014 dance season. All Tribesmen under the age of 21 in attendance won several door prizes donated by members of the Lone Bear Council. Prizes ranged from camping gear to costume supplies.
Most notable in the awards was the recognition of our Most Active Tribesmen, where an unprecedented three first-place awards were given out.
