What is Rock Your Mocs?
Established 2011, Rock Your Mocs , is best described as a worldwide Native American & Indigenous Peoples social media unity event held annually and during November National Native American Heritage Month in the U.S.A. During Rock Your Mocs, people wear their moccasins, take a photo and share them online with the hashtag #ROCKYOURMOCS which creates “an online photo album” for the world to see and enjoy. Also, individuals, organizations, businesses, schools, museums and tribes are taking the initiative to create their own independent local events too!
Dates: 2020: November 15th – 21th
Why a week? The event was increased to a week creating more event opportunity days, especially for schools, people who work Monday – Friday, and people organizing events.
Do we have to wear our Mocs the whole week? Nope, choose a day or days, or the whole week
Is there a main day? The original day will always be November 15th
Why: A positive opportunity to be united and celebrate tribal individuality by wearing moccasins. We honor our ancestors, and indigenous peoples worldwide, during Rock Your Mocs events and commemorate National Native American Heritage Month
Where: Where ever you may be! Wherever your day takes you!
How to join in: Wear your moccasins, Turquoise Awareness Ribbon, T-shirt or organize an event
Internet: Using the hashtag #ROCKYOURMOCS, post your photo using Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram etc.)
