Dancing styles varied throughout the hundreds of tribal groups. Dancing
was done with set arm, body and foot movements with a lot of foot
stamping. Today this is called "shake a leg ".The best dancers
and singers enjoyed wide reputations and high respect.
Dances often imitated animals or birds. Serious ritual or sacred dancing
was quite distinct from light hearted camp dancing that men, women
and children could share.
