Jangle rattles are also used by the Indians in their dances.
They consist of a wooden handle to which triangular metal
pieces are attached. Cut about twelve pieces of tin from tin
cans into the triangular shape shown in the drawing. Whittle
out a handle and bore six holes through it to accommodate six
pieces of heavy cotd. Knot the cords on each side of the holes
to keep them from slipping through. Then tie large knots in
the ends of the cords and bend the tin pieces around them.
The jangle rattles make a silvery tinkling sound when they are
shaken in time with the music.
