This dance skirt was traditionally worn by Kirdi women for rituals and rites of passage, such as marriage and the presentation of a newborn child. In addition to being decorative, the skirt was worn to protect against evil. As the dance skirt was only worn by women of marrying age, it was also seen as a sign of maturity. Different styles of dance skirts denote age, social status, and ethnic origin. For example, dance skirts with cowrie shells, such as this piece, represent status and prestige.
