Rainbow Schools celebrate Indigenous culture with Rock Your Mocs Day

Students and staff in Rainbow Schools will walk in harmony wearing their favourite moccasins for Rock Your Mocs Day.

The global movement, now in its ninth year, is celebrated annually on November 15th. Rainbow Schools will participate in Rock Your Mocs Day on Friday, November 13th.

“Moccasins, an important part of Indigenous culture, are as unique as the individuals who wear them,” says Rainbow District School Board Director of Education Norm Blaseg.

He adds: “We encourage everyone to wear their moccasins with pride to celebrate the traditions of Indigenous Peoples as we continue to make Indigenous Education a priority in Rainbow Schools.”

Participants are invited to take photos to spread the word on social media using the hashtag #RockYourMocs.
