Traditionally, jingle dancers had no accessories. Although some sources state that they could occasionally carry a hand purse, even then this was not a necessity. However, as the dance has evolved some jingle dancers now carry a flat fan, which are created by placing individual feathers to either a handle or a bird’s wing.
