Announcing!
Rock Your Mocs 2021
Dates: November 14th – 20th

Official hashtags:
#RockYourMocs
#RockYourMocs2021

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/video/story, add 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 annually 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 #RockYourMocs2021

WILMA MANKILLER TO BE FEATURED ON US QUARTER

"The Wilma Mankiller Quarter is the third coin in the American Women Quarters™ Program. Wilma Mankiller was the first woman elected principal chief of the Cherokee Nation and an activist for Native American and women’s rights.

She was born in the Cherokee Nation in 1945. Mankiller was elected chief in 1987, and four years later, re-elected in a landslide. She tripled her tribe’s enrollment, doubled employment, and built new housing, health centers, and children’s programs in northeast Oklahoma. Under her leadership, infant mortality declined and educational levels rose. Her leadership on social and financial issues made her tribe a national role model. After leaving office in 1995, she remained a strong voice worldwide for social justice, native people, and women.

Mankiller received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1998, the highest honor given to civilians in the United States. She was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1993."

The Rothko Chapel invites you to attend a virtual conversation on Indigenous perspectives on rights as a part of their larger program series “Beyond the Rhetoric: Civil Rights & Our Shared Responsibility” examining both the historical contexts and contemporary conditions for understanding some of the critical civil and human rights issues of today.

Thursday, September 30, 6pm CT | Livestream Event on Vimeo
American Indian Worldview & the Concept of Rights

Join for a dialogue between Tink Tinker and Dina Gilio-Whitaker, moderated by Suzanne Benally, exploring the concept of rights for the American Indian people. Juxtaposed to western frameworks that focus on individual rights, for American Indians the idea of rights has often been used against the collective interests of tribal nations because the philosophical foundations at the core of Indigenous and western worldviews are dramatically different. The conversation will include these themes and provide an opportunity for the virtual audience to ask questions.

Well, Congratulations to the new American Indian Center of Houston. You have been up and running for quite some time now. I'm confident the project is a great success and is a huge asset to the community. Can someone please share photos of the facility and also provide information on the successes, progress, and programs being utilized at the center. Also, can someone tell me...where is the Chicago center??
When you get the photos printed and framed, I would love to see it. ❤️
I would love to donate some of my Powwow images for the Center.
