WASHINGTON – In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, Friday, November 15, 2013 is “Rock Your Mocs” Day.

It is a day to celebrate your Native heritage by wearing your moccasins all day. Wear them to school or work. Wear them at home. Wear them if you go shopping.

This is the third year of the grassroots effort to “Roc Your Mocs” during Native American Heritage Month. It is a great way to demonstrate to non-Native people American Indians and Alaska Natives are still here.

This message is from the Rock Your Mocs November 15, 2013 Facebook page:

Be a part of a world-wide event. Happening everywhere. Going on 3rd year. I picked November because it is Native American Heritage Month. The Date is random. You’d wear your moccasins all day.. to school, to work, around the house, to the store. Basically showing everybody that us as Native Americans are still around. Invite & share with all your Native Buds, Cousins, Sisters, Brother, Grandmas, Uncles, Mom, Dad. Let people know who aren’t on Facebook!! I wanna see people wearing their Mocs on November 15th!!!! WHOOOO!!!

“It means that you can kill us by the thousands, take our land, force us on death marches, but we’re still here. You can put us in boarding schools, cut our hair, forbid us to speak our languages, take us away from our culture and traditions, yet we’re still here. I was born a Native and I will die a Native and there will be more after I am gone. We will always be here” 

Send us your photos you wearing your moccasins tomorrow, we will post on Facebook. Send them to: levi@nativenewsonline.net.
