    • Hi thank you for posting your beautiful videos. You have inspired me greatly! I have made at least five skirts and still working on three more. I have received a lot of compliments making them andI try to explain why they are made the way they are. After watching Skirt Teachings, I now have the full explanation of why the skirts are made the way they are.

  2. Thank you for posting the teachings behind the wearing of the Ribbon and Fringe Skirts. I have made several skirts not only for myself but for other native women from different tribes. By watching the videos that Tala Tootoosis have made and she made it appeared fun and easy and that inspired me!
