This Friday, November 15, at the midpoint of Native American Heritage Month, Natives from all over Turtle Island will be wearing moccasins with Indigenous pride — it's a little day of celebration known as Rock Your Mocs day, and it's caught on in a big way. Thanks to social media, Rock Your Mocs isn't just a show of unity — it's also a show-and-tell, with moc-rockers Tweeting, Facebooking, and Instagramming their traditional footwear for others to see and admire.
Here's a collection of great Instagram pictures sent out last year using the hashtag #RockUrMocs — which, according to the Rock Your Mocs Facebook page will be the tag to use again in 2013. (You might notice some familiar names in the pictures below — for example, recording artist IsKwe and painter/muralist Yatika Starr Fields. Rock Your Mocs is for everyone.)
