Rock Your Mocs 2020
Dates: November 15th – 21st
Why a week? To create more event opportunity days, especially for schools, people who work M-F, 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
What is Rock Your Mocs?
Established 2011, Rock Your Mocs, is a worldwide Native American & Indigenous Peoples social media event held annually and during National Native American Heritage Month in the U.S. A.. People wear their moccasins, take a photo or video or story, add the hashtag #RockYourMocs and upload to social media. This creates an online photo album for the world to see and enjoy. Additionally individuals, organizations, casino's, schools, museums and tribes are taking the initiative to create their own independent events throughout the world.
Rock Your Mocs was founded in 2011 by Jessica Jaylyn Atsye (Laguna Pueblo, NM U.S.A.) and beginning 2013 has been organized and produced by Native American event producer Melissa Sanchez(Acoma/Laguna Pueblos NM U.S.A.) of @Emergence Prod Uctions
Why: We, as Indigenous people stand united through our tribal individuality, symbolically wear our moccasins, honor our ancestors, and indigenous peoples worldwide, during Rock Your Mocs and National Native American Heritage Month
Where is RYM held? Where ever you may be and wherever your day takes you or there may be an event in your community
