“Unfinished Sash” These two represent our young Metis girls that have gone missing or were murdered, and never got to wear their sashes. The bigger one has 16 rows, but it’s to indicate that the girl was taken during her 16th year. The smaller one is for a 5 yr old girl, like Tamra Keepness. Although I know she is First Nations, she does represent our young girls who have gone missing.
