Rainbow Schools celebrate Indigenous culture with Rock Your Mocs Day

Students and staff in Rainbow Schools will walk in harmony wearing their favourite moccasins on Friday, November 15, 2019.

“Moccasins are an important part of Indigenous culture, and 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 traditions of Indigenous Peoples. Rock Your Mocs Day is a great opportunity to acknowledge their contributions and build understanding.”

In its eighth year, Rock Your Mocs Day is a global movement held annually during the month of November.

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