The jingle dress originated in Whitefish Bay, ON, Canada. It is said that a Chief’s granddaughter was very ill and the medicine woman was unable to help her. One night the Chief had a vision. He saw a girl dancing with shells on her dress and the sounds carried up to the Creator. The sound was pleasing to the Creator and he then healed the man's granddaughter. When the Chief woke from his vision, he had his wife make the dress and dance in it. His Granddaughter was healed!
