The Sunrise Dance __ "Traditionally, almost every Western Apache girl had a puberty ceremony, or na'ii'ees ('preparing her,' or 'getting her ready'), known popularly as the Sunrise Dance. Today, this is no longer true. Although puberty ceremonies continue to be performed on a regular basis, most Apache girls now must do without them. Two reasons for this decline are apparent. First, as a result of inroads made on the traditional religion by missionaries, some Apaches no longer believe in the effectiveness of na'ii'ees. A second reason that na'ii'ees is held less and less is its prohibitive cost. The amount of money and work required is staggering and this condition makes the ceremony impossible for many people." You will learn much more about the dance. A few black and white photos are found with the text. - illustrated - From Harvard University - http://www.peabody.harvard.edu/maria/Sunrisedance.html
