A little girl from the Poundmaker Cree Nation got a big surprise this week.

Emma, a member of children’s band The Wiggles, accepted and wore on stage a traditional Cree ribbon skirt given to her by three-and-a-half year old RJ Tootoosis at the band’s concert in Saskatoon on Wednesday.

The children’s music star wore the skirt on stage as the band sang The Alphabet Song/Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

“I was so surprised that she kept the skirt on for the whole song,” said RJ’s mother, Andrea Landry.
