Celebrating Heritage: Ribbon Skirt Day Photo Collage

On January 4, 2024, Indigenous Women Rise Society (IWRS) joyously marked Ribbon Skirt Day, a meaningful celebration in Canada that honours the cultural significance of ribbon skirts. This day holds deep roots in Indigenous traditions, symbolizing cultural pride.

Ribbon Skirt Day in Canada is a day dedicated to celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Indigenous peoples, specifically through the artistry of ribbon skirts. These skirts, adorned with vibrant ribbons, hold great significance in Indigenous communities, representing a connection to tradition, family, and the strength of Indigenous women.

To commemorate this special occasion, IWRS embarked on a heartwarming project, creating a photo collage featuring the beautiful ribbon skirts crafted and worn by members of our community. Over 50 women contributed to this visual tapestry, each skirt a unique expression of heritage, identity, and artistry.

The resulting photo collage is a beautiful mosaic that reflects the diversity and creativity within our community. Each skirt tells a story—of cultural pride, resilience, and the enduring spirit of Indigenous women. Witnessing these skirts come together in a single visual is not only a celebration of artistry but a testament to the power of community and shared heritage.

As we reflect on Ribbon Skirt Day and admire the photo collage, we are reminded of the beauty that emerges when traditions are celebrated and shared. The vibrancy of the skirts speaks to the strength of Indigenous identity and the interconnectedness of our community.

In Unity,

Indigenous Women Rise
