The significance of, and details about, the Mountain Spirit Dancers. And how they are also known as Crown Dancers. The significance of, and other names for, White Changing Woman. What happens during the four-day ceremony? How preparations are made for the Ceremony and why the sponsors and the girl's attendant are so crucial to its success. Symbolism of ritual items that will be seen in the photographs. How the ceremony is important not only to help the girl step into womanhood, but also how it is a healing and bonding ceremony for the whole community. How the government tried to destroy Native cultures by prohibiting ceremonies like this one and how the laws were finally changed. The reasons why all Apache puberty ceremonies are not exactly like this one, and what some of the others are like.
