Home Page Online Magazine Forum Book reviews ... Response form Scalp Dance: Indian Warfare on the High Plains, 1865-1879, by Thomas Goodrich, Stackpole Books, 2002, paperback, 352 pages, 0811729079, $19.95. Reviewed by Susan Forsyth, University of Essex Posted 30 September 2003
An obituary for Dee Brown in The Guardian (17 December 2002) opens by stating: ‘If one book demolished for ever the heroic myth of America’s conquest of the west, it was Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee: An Indian History Of The American West.’ Unfortunately this sentiment is not embraced by everyone, as shown by Thomas Goodrich in Scalp Dance.
Goodrich has amassed an impressive number of first-hand accounts from the writings of soldiers, settlers, their wives and others. From Custer and Sheridan to regulars and homesteaders these are stories of battle, torture, captivity and atrocities encountered during the era of westward expansion in the post-Civil War period and particularly, as the title suggests, of conflict between whites and Indians. Goodrich links these accounts with his own sparse narrative portraying a very traditional story of ‘the winning of the West’, which he describes as ‘one of the most romantic dramas the world had ever known’ (110).
Although the book opens with a short account of the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864 the focus is almost entirely on attacks undertaken and atrocities performed by Indians. Only accounts by white people are reproduced in the book with Goodrich providing no analysis, interpretation or critical assessment of these stories, and even overtly racist descriptions of Indian ‘nature’ are included without comment (178-9). Goodrich himself adopts nineteenth-century racial stereotyping of Indians in his own narrative: he describes them as ‘fierce’ (7), ‘wild’ (27, 305), ‘hostiles’ (218) and ‘hangs-around-the-forts’ (40) and writes that it is in the Indians’ ‘nature’ to be ‘warlike’ (185). Oversimplifying the complexity of the relations between the US state and Indians at the end of the ‘Indian Wars’, he writes that ‘hardly a generation passed’ before the Americans, having no time to bear ‘grudges’, had ‘buried the hatchet’ (307) – that would presumably be at Wounded Knee in 1890.

Traditional indian folk dance
Indian dance is an extremely intricate art requiring skill, hard work and discipline. Every dance posture has a specific meaning. All Indian dances portray some expression of life. Themes used in Indian dance are from Indian folklore and mythology. Most of the dances portray an Indian god coupled with an Indian goddess such as ‘Vishnu and Lakshmi’, ‘Rama and Sita’, ‘Krishna and Radha’. Indian dance is said to have originated from ‘Natya Shastra’, which is a detailed script written on all aspects of Indian dance. The author of ‘Natya Shastra’ was ‘Bharata Muni’ who wrote this some time in the 2nd century B.C. bodyOffer(7166) The ‘Natya Shastra’ has been instrumental in providing the clothing, ornaments, the stage setting and, mainly, the various gestures and emoting techniques for all types of Indian dance. Indian dance consists of rhythm called ‘nritta’, expression called ‘nritya’ and drama called ‘natya’. The ‘mudras’ [gestures with the hands] for all types of Indian dances are the same. ‘Mudras’ are used for ‘nritta’ and ‘natya’. The ‘rasas’ [portrayal of emotions] are used for ‘nritya’. There are mainly nine types of emotions portrayed in Indian dance – ‘hasya’ [happiness], ‘krodha’ [anger], ‘bhibasta’ [disgust], ‘bhaya’ [fear], shoka [sorrow], ‘viram’ [courage], ‘karuna’ [compassion], ‘adbhuta’ [wonder] and ‘shanta’ [serenity]. The most significant symbol of dance in India is the ‘Natraj’. This is a dance poise of the god ‘Shiva’ in a posture signifying various aspects of human life. ‘Shiva's dance signifies creation, preservation, and destruction. ‘Shiva’ is a male god with blue skin, long hair tied up on the top of his head, and a strong body and two pairs of arms.

    But for this Website we need a more accurate picture to match this phrase. And it deserves it anyway. Firstly, it does not refer to the dances of India as a whole, but only to some of them. Secondly, its geographical scope is not limited to the political entity of India nor even the Indian subcontinent.
    1. Not all dances of India
    The subcontinent knows many different dance traditions, some are of indigenous origin, others show a more or less obvious foreign influence. Among the indigenous traditions are :
  • Sacred dances, often connected to the temple, sharing a common esthetic quality and having sophisticated technique.
  • Tribal dances. They sometimes have a ritual function, like the dances of number Dances of foreign origin, or betraying heavy foreign contributions in their foundations include :
  • The modern Western-influenced creations of the urbanized society.
  • The large corpus of Middle East-inspired folk forms found mainly in the northwestern regions.
  • Dance forms, such as kathak, originating from the Mughal courts have a mixed background. They are partly derived from the Indian temple tradition but shall be considered with caution as their technique and context owe also a lot to Middle Eastern culture.

    Characteristics of Indian dance
    An Indian art
    In all cases, Indian dance is very concrete and subtle at the same time. This is true of all Indian art. Pleasure and saturation of the senses, profusion, rhythmic delight, all are the expression of a sense of wholeness and divine felicity. The profusion of details and intricacy of gestures is there only to give full life to the rhythm of the dance. Like in Indian architecture, sculpture and painting, every empty space has to be filled with ornamentation. It is like displaying worlds within worlds, all unified in one global rhythm. The spectator can only be amazed, feel dizzy and lost, but aware of a global unity. Dance is very often represented in Indian statues, reliefs and paintings. Many bronze and stone statues are actual dance positions. Otherwise they always use the same kind of language as the dance. Reliefs are more narrative but actual dance poses can be represented. Both reliefs and paintings are a good mean to enhance a two-dimensional aspect of dance. Indian two-dimensional dance does exist : shadow puppet plays. Here, the dancers are not humans but shadow characters. The technique is different from dance but codes, symbols and stories are shared by both forms.

    "We bow to Him the benevolent One
    Whose limbs are the worlds,
    Whose song and poetry are the essence of all language,
    Whose costume is the moon and the stars..." "The dancing foot, the sound of the tinkling bells,
    The songs that are sung, and the various steps,
    The forms assumed by our Master as He dances, Discover these in your own heart, So shall your bonds be broken." -Tirumular
    Dance is a form of communication that brings out the innermost feelings and at the same time depicts the cultural aspects of a civilization. Indian classical dances are dances of the mind and soul and are extremely traditional. They still follow the rules set down by Bharatha Muni (a saint) in his Natyashastra many years ago. They along with folk dances present a spectacular and gorgeous aspect of the magnificent and continuous Indian dance tradition. Dance which is created through rhythmic movements is very sensuous but the experience of ananda (bliss) it evokes is very spiritual.

    and Mohini Attam from Kerala.
    Kathakali literally means story-play and is an elaborate dance depicting the victory of truth over falsehood.
    A Striking feature of Kathakali is the use of elaborate make-up and colourful costumes. This is to emphasize that the characters are superbeings from another world, and their make-up is easily recognisable to the trained eye as satvik or godlike, rajasik or heroic, and tamasik or demonic.
    Mohini Attam
    Some poses of Mohini Attam
    The theme of Mohini attam dance is love and devotion to god. Vishnu or Krishna is most often the hero. The spectators can feel His invisible presence when the heroine or her maid details dreams and ambitions through circular movements, delicate footsteps and subtle expressions. Through slow and medium tempos, the dancer is able to find adequate space for improvisations and suggestive bhavas or emotions.

    14. Nritya - Indian Classical Dance
    NRITYA indian CLASSICAL dance. by David Courtney, Ph.D. INTRODUCTION. CLASSICAL dance. It is particularly problematic to talk of classical indian dance.
    by David Courtney, Ph.D.
    India has a very rich tradition of classical dance. The Natya Shastra , which is the oldest surviving text on stagecraft in the world, spends a considerable time discussing it. In the old days of the theatre, the dancers would mime the story while the singers would sing the dialogue. The instrumentalists would accompany them all. The nature of the old theatre was such that the dancers occupied a central position. For many centuries the dancers were attached to the temples. This maintained a strong religious flavour to dance. Even today many of the traditional themes are mythological in nature. Over the centuries different areas have given their own colour to the ancient classical tradition. Today the acknowledged classical styles are: Bharatnatyam of Tamil Nadu, Kathakali of Kerala, Kuchipudi of Andhra Pradesh, Manipuri of Northeast India, Orissi from Orissa, and Kathak from north India and Pakistan. Each of these styles has a strong regional connection and none can claim to be representative of the entire Indian subcontinent.
    It is particularly problematic to talk of classical Indian dance. The problem stems partly from the definition of the word "classical", and partly from the nature of the Indian dance forms.

    "Young girls and boys are getting jobs very easily," she says. "Young people can rent flats, live on their own, buy cars. They're doing things I couldn't dream of doing at their age because the economy was very tight and opportunities were very slim."
