Ribbon Skirt Making
"Tansi, my name is Bonnie Albert. As a Cree Home Economics educator, I feel that it is important to share my newly, self-taught, cultural knowledge and sewing skills, mainly to my students. I am extremely proud to announce that I have just recently shared the meaning and process on how to sew a Ribbon Skirt with my Senior Years Human Ecology class. As this was the first group that I have shared this beautiful teaching with, I plan on sharing it with as many more students as I can, now and in the future. I also plan on hosting Ribbon Skirt Workshops to the public here in our hometown of Norway House very soon. To help with this teaching, I have created a PDF download titled “How to Sew a Basic Ribbon Skirt – A Step by Step Picture Guide for Beginners” that is given to all my students who participate in making one, and have it available to purchase on Etsy and Teachers Pay Teachers for those who would love to learn and share this teaching as well. This is all in hopes to keep our culture alive and growing, especially for the younger generations to come. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at the school. Ekosi."
