Thanksgiving has always been a quintessentially American holiday but was never intended as a day for honoring the Native Americans who had been essential to the survival of our forefathers that founded this country.

To the Natives and their ancestors, Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of the genocide of millions of their people, the theft of their lands, and the relentless assault of their culture. 
Give thanks for all that you have and the rewards that life brings, but never forget that this day has been recognized as a National Day of Mourning to those who lost their lands, their people and their culture.
