The sunrise dance is a White Mountain Apache four day ceremony in which a girl passes from childhood to womanhood. | cattail pollen is something holy to the Apache people. it is used as a blessing. on saturday and sunday she is showered with the bright yellow powder. all the people in attendance pick up a handful of pollen from a basket and shake it over her head. each says prayers in their minds. then her father pours candies and corn kernels over her to protect her from famine.
