The cross-collared ru wraps around to create a turtle neck.
I really like the asymmetrical design of this look. This Han-style curve collar 曲领 was a unique choice. Haven’t seen much of them around even as plain-old ru. This is a shan I think.
The design of two-piece skirt / xuanqun 旋裙 was bold too. Really like the belt.
The Miꞌkmaq people are facing hostility and threats in Eastern Canada over the right to fish to sustain themselves.
This has included:
- “In response to Mi’kmaq fishers setting up 150 out of their 350 allowed traps, non-Indigenous fishers gathered at the wharf in Digby to protest.”
- “One of the ways Nova Scotian fishers have found it appropriate to protest Mi’kmaq harvesting practices has been to chase down boats and fire flares directly at them. There have also been attempts to ram small boats with much larger vessels.”
- Two people being arrested and charged with assault.
- “Lobster traps in St. Mary’s Bay were vandalized, their lines were cut, and the traps were left on the shore.”
- “Some fishers have posted calls on social media to reimplement the Canadian residential school system, and for other harsh treatment of Indigenous peoples and their children.”
- A lobster boat belonging to a Mi’kmaq fisher has been destroyed by a suspicious fire at a wharf in southwestern Nova Scotia.
These people have the right to sustainably fish on their own land and support their livelihoods. Megan Bailey, professor at Dalhousie University’s Marine Affairs program, an expert, has said that there is no conservation concern as has otherwise been claimed. “The scale of the livelihood fishery as it exists right now with 350 traps is not a conservation concern.”
Ways you can support the Mi’kmaq people (both on this front + other issues):
Treaty Truckhouse Legal Fund - Grassroots Grandmothers, Mi'kmaw Rights Holders and others continue to stand united as water protectors of the Shubenacadie River in the Sipekne'katik District of Mi'kma'ki, where Alton Gas intends to dump salt brine equivalent to 3000 tonnes of hard salt every day.

If you have any useful additions, please let me know, and I will add anything that I find. Also please spread this around, awareness is also important so that these issues do not fly under the radar and get a pass.
update on this since its been a few weeks, it hasnt stopped and it got even worse last night
I talked to the woman in charge of Fisheries at the Sipekne’katik Nations office, she says there are NO gofundme drives affiliated with their fleet. If you want to give money, contact Monica at firstname.lastname@example.org. I repeat: THE FISHERY IS NOT AFILIATED WITH ANY GOFUNDMES.
Thank you for the clarification, it looks like the fishery gofundme is down!
IMPORTANT TO NOTE GUYS: donate through their official channels as they currently DO NOT have a gofundme!!
