"The women's fancy shawl dance represents the opening of a cocoon when the butterfly emerges. The shawl, as a result, is meant to symbolize the wings of a butterfly, and the fancy steps and twirls represent its style of flight. The shawl is usually the most extravagant part of the fancy shawl dancers regalia. This Fancy Shawl Sister is dancing for the spirits of all of the children found in the hidden graves of the residential schools in Canada and the United States." - Linda Whitney
