The Sash is a finger woven belt made of wool approximately three metres long. Traditionally it was tied at the waist to hold a coat closed, including being used as a scarf or rope.
Each colour of the sash represents:
Yellow - Prosperity
Blue _ The depth of the Metis Sprit
White - The connection to Mother Earth
Red - Blood shed
Green - Fertility
Dark Blue - The dark period of repression and disposession.
This display was part of a presentation at Aurora College's Thebacha Campus the week of November 15th, 2004.
