“The painting is of Nora, a young Jicarilla Apache. The Jicarilla Apache  originates from the New Mexico area. Although she is Southern, she dances in a Northern style. She is also a Southern Traditional dancer, but she prefers to dance Jingle. The Jingle Dress is also called a Prayer Dress. There are differences in the origins of the dress among the tribes. The dress was seen in a dream, as an object to bring healing to afflicted people. Jingle Dresses are decorated with rolled up snuff can lids that are hung with ribbon. The ribbon is then sewed to the dress, The jingles are placed close enough so they can hit together, causing a beautiful sound. If one were to close their eyes as the Jingle dancer passes, it would sound as though it were raining.”
