Indigenous people from coast to coast to coast are rocking their moccasins at school, at the office and in communities this week amid a worldwide campaign to promote cultural pride.
It’s called Rock Your Mocs.
“I’m showing my representation in public spaces, including social media,” said Ashley Daniels, the Manitoba representative on the Assembly of First Nations national youth council.
“Just to be reminded that we hold these spaces, too.”
Daniels said participating in the campaign brings a sense of empowerment. Her moccasins were made by her uncle. She’s worn them to the United Nations headquarters in New York, in London and across Canada.
