The sash is the badge of the Metis People, both in the U.S. and in Canada. It is the most important part of our regalia.


Worn by Eastern Woodland People as a sign of office in the 19th century, and by French Canadians during the Lower Canadian Rebellion in the 1830's. It is still considered to be an important part of traditional dress for both these groups.

The sash has acquired new significance in the 20th century, now symbolizing pride and identification for Metis people in both the US and Canada.



            The seven color sash is explained as follows:

Red, White, Black, Yellow                                 Four races
          Purple                                                           The inner You
          Green                                                            Earth Mother
       Blue                                                              Sky Father
