To help raise awareness of Native American Heritage Month, Rock Your Mocs November 12-18!
Work, school, vacation -wherever you are, wear your moccasins! Take a photo and share it on social media with the hashtag – #rockyourmocs or #rym2017.
Why a week?
The event was increased to a week creating more opportunity days to join in or for RYM 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
2017 is the 7th year of Rock Your Mocs which is a worldwide Native American & Indigenous Peoples movement held annually during November which is also National Native American Heritage Month in the U.S. A.. It’s easy to participate by wearing moccasins to school, to work or wherever your day takes you. Or if a person doesn’t own mocs, can’t wear mocs, or perhaps their Tribe didn’t wear mocs, they may wear a Turquoise Awareness Ribbon instead. Even easier, the event takes place where you are, where you’re going and where you live.
Rock Your Mocs if a fun way to unify Native American, Aboriginal, First Nations, Alaskan Native, Indigenous Peoples globally through internet social media, participants post their photos for everyone to enjoy, sharing their stories and creating an “online photo album” by using any one or all of the following hastags:
It’s like a great big fun moccasin party that everyone gets to see pictures of! RYM was founded by Jessica “Jaylyn” Atsye of Laguna Pueblo, New Mexico U.S.A. and she has partnered with Emergence Productions, a Native American owned Event Production Company, who together are working hard to expand this cultural empowerment initiative worldwide!
