Moccasin Stories — The Film

HEY EVERYONE! We’re currently crowdfunding! Head over to our Indiegogo page to take a look!

 

Despite the devastating effects of colonization, Indigenous culture has survived. We’re in an era now where Indigenous people are beginning to rediscover who they are and where they came from. The moccasin and mukluk metaphorically speaks to the resiliency of Indigenous people and culture.

The moccasin is not only used and enjoyed by Aboriginal people — it’s also found it’s way into mainstream fashion. Moccasin Stories follows the women who are at the forefront of keeping the craft of moccasin making alive.

The short film is currently in production, with a release date in early 2017.
