In celebration of Native American Heritage Month and Rock Your Mocs Week, Gilcrease Museum is offering free admission to guests who wear their moccasins to the museum beginning Saturday, Nov. 9, through Saturday, Nov. 16.
Throughout the week, Gilcrease Museum will have several stages for visitors wearing their moccasins to photograph their footwear and share on social media. Guests are encouraged to use the hashtag #RockYourMocs and/or #RockYourMocs2019 and to tag Gilcrease Museum for a chance to be featured on the museum’s social media accounts.
About Rock Your Mocs
Established in 2011, Rock Your Mocs is a worldwide Native American and 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, casinos, 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 Productions.
