Its origins trace back to circa 1885, the time of the Battle of Batoche. This sash is a Métis version of the L’Assomption sash with a black border replacing the red in order to represent the “Dark Times”. This period started around 1870 – 1885 when the Métis were considered “traitors” and had to hide their identity for over a hundred years.
