Arapaho stories of the women's fancy or shawl dance attribute it to imitating butterflies. I could provide an Arapaho-language version of this story if desired.

Hi everyone,

I am looking for references about the symbolism of butterflies in Algonquian cultures. I am interested in powwow regalia, especially for children, where this design is often represented.
Thanks in advance,
