Note: Rattles, occurring in pairs and worn around the ankles; usually made of box-turtle shells but tin cans or milk cartons are also used. Affixed in dense clusters so the shells frequently shake and collide with each other. Worn by Southeast Native North Americans, such as the Chickasaw, Cherokee, and Yuchi, usually during stomp dances.
