  • Format is the same as with Moccasin Dance BUT the songs are different
  • 2 or more singers, usually about 6-10, in the middle, water drum and horn rattles
  • "Fish" step style of dancing
  • Single file, two men lead the dance, other men join in pairs
  • Women join the men, two at a time and join the line between the men so that the line eventually ends up as two men, two women, two men
  • Song changes beat and the men and women switch places, so that the women that started on the inside of two men, end up on the outside of two men
  • The song ends and the partners stay where they are until the next song, and they will switch places again, when the beat changes
