Traditional deer toe leggings are used in stomp dancing, a social dance that is enjoyed by many. In this dance the lead male guides the line of dancers in a spiral around the fire. The line alternates from man to woman. The women at the beginning of the line keep the rhythm with shakers on their legs of either turtle shells, deer toes or in modern times, cans.
