Umatilla Horse Dance
Credit Line:
Gift of William D. Weiss
Gloss:
Horses were honored for their skill, agility and power during warfare. Among the Plateau peoples, warriors returning from battle would stop outside of camp, put on their best, decorate their horses and then parade through the encampment. In Umatilla Horse Dance, Borein conveys the aesthetic richness and excitement associated with the warriors' grand entry astride feathered, painted and prancing horses.
