    I'm wearing Levis and a white t-shirt right now! I should trade in my New Balance's for a pair of those moccassins. They are COOL!!!


    Why must I feel like that..why must I chase the cat?

      What would you think if you saw a guy wearing these moccasins with blue jeans a t-shirt?

      those are Navajo, thought you said you were part Ojibwe.

          As you get more in touch with your roots you'll learn that each Nation has there own ways and culture. There are similarities but there are differences too. Imagine you were part Japanese, would you wear Chinese or Korean clothing to get in touch with being Japanese?...nope cause they are all different despite all being Asian....same thing. Cool mocs, check out some Ojibway mocs, they are nice and have beautiful beadwork. Plus every other NDN will look at your feet and be like "Swet Ojibway mocs!"...which would be what you want...you don't want to be explaining to everyone that your wearing some sweet Navajo mocs but your actually Ojibway. Not saying you shouldn't wear them, just saying it's probably not going to be what you want in the long run.

                        the point everyone is making is that you can't just pick and choose what you like, if your Ojibwe don't go around wearing navajo mocs to the mall acting all "ndn". OOOOOHHH, look, he must be ndn, he's wearing moccasins. If all it takes for you to be an ndn is slipping on a pair of mocs that were made in China or someplace like that then get yourself a kilt, a sombrero, a samurai sword, and make yourself the frickin united nations.


                        I'm a nike man myself.

                            HOnestly, It sounds like you'd already made up your mind about the mocs before you even made the post.
                            To me, mocs are not the best footwear for modern life. They weren't made to deal with hard surfaces like concrete and asphalt but were created to adapt to their surroundings. Save your mocs for dancing. If you want something to display your NDN-ness, I think some fully beaded Converse would be keen! I always thought it would be cool to have a pair!

                              I'm a New Balance ndn myself...... and my moccs have Dr. Schols gel inserts in them cause they are not made for hard flooring....

                              Life should not be measured by the number of things that we aquire on our journey but by the number of lives that we touch along that road.
