Native American Apache Dance Hoop
Native American Apache Dance Hoop of Early 20th Century Design. Wooden tied with Cord
- The most sacred of all symbols in all Native American cultures is the circle, however, which for the Apache is most potently embodied in its chief symbol, the sacred hoop.
- Called "Dee'" or "Ndee,'" the Apache hoop contains special powers that make it useful in a variety of ceremonies, although it is generally associated with healing and protection.
- The hoop is divided into four sections, traditionally symbolizing the four directions and the four seasons.
- Like most traditional Apache symbols, this hoop is painted with the four sacred colors: black, red, yellow and white.
