Rock your mocs!

The theme for February’s workshop was moccasin making, a class led by Southern Ute elder Elise Redd. Parents guided the youth in tracing their feet on paper, to create templates for the leather soles.
The Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy hosted their Family Night on Wednesday, Feb. 20 for students and their parents to share in a cultural exchange.
Redd provided the raw materials, and experience to help guide participants in the processes of starting their own project, hand sewing leather moccasins — using traditional practices passed down from one generation to the next.
