Brightly-coloured Ribbon Skirts are a traditional piece of clothing for many Indigenous women and girls. Ribbon skirts are seen at many Indigenous events as it honors their ancestral practices. It is a way to connect to traditions and adapt to new ones, such as wearing a Ribbon Skirt to honour MMIW (missing and murdered Indigenous women and children).

Please celebrate with us at the Ribbon Skirt & Tea Gathering on Monday, February 21, 1:00 – 3:00 PM, George Bothwell Branch.
