Rock Your Mocs Indigenous Unity Event Held At IE Weldon Secondary School

KAWARTHA LAKES-Local Indigenous students had a chance to celebrate and learn about their culture on Thursday.

Established 2011, Rock Your Mocs, is best described as a worldwide Native American & Indigenous Peoples virtual unity event held annually and during November National Native American Heritage Month. During the Rock Your Mocs, people wear their moccasins, take a photo, create a 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.

Rock Your Mocs allows provides an opportunity for ndividuals, organizations, businesses, schools, museums and tribes to create their own independent local events too such as the one held at Weldon!
