Indian Country Today

It’s that time of year again where you can grab your favorite pair of moccasins or traditional footwear, a turquoise ribbon or a t-shirt showcasing your Indigeneity, and post a photo on social media. Make sure to include the the hashtag #RockYourMocs or #RockYourMocs2021.

“Rock Your Mocs” started in 2011 as a one-day celebration, the day was created by Jessica Jaylyn Atsye, Laguna Pueblo. The event evolved into a one week celebration and is organized by Melissa Sanchez, Acoma and Laguna Pueblo.

Here are a few fun posts we saw on social media:
