Presented in partnership with CMWI/SewFair

In the Anishinaabe culture, the skirt identifies women to Mother Earth. Women are required to wear a skirt during ceremonies. Today, we often see ribbon-decorated skirts worn outside of ceremonies by women of all cultures to honour who they are.

Join us to learn about this tradition that dates from the late-1700s and to create your own skirt. It is appropriate to be making these garments in the spring so they will be ready to wear at ceremonies, special events and pow wow.

On April 21, Audrey will talk about the skirt and have a small sharing circle, and then we will proceed to design and cut our skirts. On April 28, we will sew our skirts and add the ribbons.

Audrey Johnson is a member of the First Nation community of Michipicoten in Ontario. She was born and raised in Manitoba. She is the mother of two children and grandmother of six, and the owner of Aniwind Designs—a small business in Winnipeg that marries Anishinaabe and West Indies cultures. Her passions include photography, beadwork, sewing and other craft practices.
