Since 2011, Rock your Mocs has showcased the diversity of Indigenous peoples by encouraging them to share stories through photos of their moccasins.
Indigenous Directions is inviting you to join us in celebrating the week-long event by attending Rocking Those Mocs: Dancing for Change. Dr. Bimadoshka Pucan will host this panel discussion exploring different perspectives on how dancers today are shaping pow wows through their traditions and identities.
The discussion will be followed by a Q & A with the panelists.
How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
Bimadoshka Pucan is Anishinaabe-kwe from Saugeen First Nation #29 on the eastern shores of beautiful Lake Huron. Saugeen boasts the most awesome sunsets this side of the Ottawa River. Bimadoshka is very proud of her people, her family, and some pretty amazing corn she grew this summer. Hear Bimadoshka recount stories of her people long passed but that continue to live on as long we tell our sacred stories. HOKA!
