His daughter was told that, if she could make a dress that sounded like rain, her father would get well. She made a dress of with 365 jingles that sounded like rain. The jingles represent the 365 days of the year and remind of her father’s return to good health.”The Poarch Creek Indian Powwow Club has a member of royalty among them.
