Aberdeen IEO presents:

Contemporary "ROCK YOUR MOCCS" Workshop with Jackie Bird

October 23, 2021, 10 am - 2 pm, Central High School Aberdeen, SD.

We are honored to host internationally known Dakota hoop dancer, singer, and artist, Jackie Bird, as she shares her design talents with our IEO students and families. Jackie has designed street shoes with moccasin-like designs, as a contemporary alternative to beaded leather moccasins. She shared she does this to give opportunity for others to be creative and express their art and designs, and not be hindered if leather or beads or quills are not available to them. She presents her workshop with our students, and families, to help our students create their "moccs" prior to November "Rock Your Moccs" week, Nov 14-20, 2021.

Jackie has 15 pairs of canvas shoes, vary sizes (W8-11 or M6-9). These shoes would be available on a first come first serve basis. All participants are welcome to bring their own shoes to ensure proper size/fit. Sign up with IEO is strongly encouraged, but not required. Please bring hairdryers and/or fans to help with paint drying.

We look forward to seeing you and yours this Saturday!
