Get Ready to Rock Your Mocs! 20 Photos of Native Footwear Worn Proudly

Get Ready to Rock Your Mocs! 20 Photos of Native Footwear Worn Proudly.

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.)
