MY RIBBON SKIRTS
Indigenous women where colored ribbons on skirts for a number of reasons. The skirt shares similar teachings to teaching of the Tipi. As we prepare for prayers, our jobs or ceremonies, each time we put on our skirt, we are reminded of the roles of women. We are reminded of how to honor and protect ourselves, how to carry ourselves and of where their support lie.
The ribbon skirt is not a mere fashion statement, they are a way of life.
