The original incarnation of Moccasin flats was as a 2002 short called Moccasin Flats: The Short Film. This movie was the product of an Aboriginal youth media empowerment workshop called repREZentin', which teamed Aboriginal youth with industry professionals in an effort to create short films and videos that told their stories. The short film told the story of Justin, a young Native man who has just found that he's been accepted to university. While he is grateful for the opportunity, he is afraid to leave his friends and family (particularly his younger brother) behind in the harsh neighborhood of Moccasin Flats. His fears are compounded when his arch-rival who is also the former pimp of his now ex-prostitute girlfriend is released from jail and back into the Flats.


The popularity of the short film led to the creation of the Moccasin Flats television series that starred many of the youth from the original film.

Moccasins are flexible shoes originally worn by indigenous North American peoples and other natives from the Arctic region, Inuit, Lapps and Siberian tribesmen.
Taller moccasins were also worn, usually by women, that were anywhere from short ankle-boots to hip-length.
Such is the practicality and comfort of the moccasin, that moccasin style footwear is widely available in a huge variety of designs and using modern materials, traditional materials, or a combination of the two.
