Grateful for this program and proud to support it. Let's do it for the kids!

The Wichita Public Schools’ Native American Indian Education Program acquired an authentic buffalo hide tipi to use in educational programs throughout the district. The tipi is constructed in the same way the Native Americans built them for centuries.

Bison haven’t stepped foot on this land in the Badlands National Park since 1870. Today we celebrated the park opening up 22,000 acres of new bison range, something you, our supporters, helped make possible. Almost 1,200 bison now have 80,000 acres to graze.

Rock Your Mocs

Announcing!
Rock Your Mocs 2019
Dates: November 9th – 16th

Official hashtags:
#RockYourMocs
#RockYourMocs2019

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 others to 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 ;)

How to join in:
- Wear your moccasins or a turquoise Awareness Ribbon or a T-shirt or organize an event
- Take a pic, video or story and upload to social media and use the hashtag #ROCKYOURMOCS and/or #ROCKYOURMOCS2019
- Click on the #RockYourMocs to see what’s happening worldwide !
