Métis Ribbon Skirt Workshop – Sunday, November 21, 2021

Ribbon skirts are an historical and traditional form of identity
among Indigenous women. Learning to construct one for
yourself is honouring Métis women’s heritage and culture.

Each time we put on our skirt, we are reminded of the roles of
women. We are reminded of how to honour and protect ourselves,
and how to carry ourselves. Ribbon skirts come in different colours
and hold different meanings to the women who wear them.

Participants of this intermediate class are welcome to bring their own
materials – please refer to materials list, or purchase package from
Métis Crossing. Please indicate dress size when you register.
