I will be presenting my umpteenth WZBC Pow-Wow on Thanksgiving (The 
National Day of Mourning for Natives) from noon 12 midnight or 
beyond. All Native American and/or Native American-influenced music - 
rock, folk, country, traditional chants, new age, and even some jazz. 
There will be reports from demonstrations at Plymouth, Mass. and 
possibly interviews regarding Native American spirituality and 

Please send me any suggestions for music. Even if it seems obvious, I 
may have missed it, especially in the modern rock vein.

Since 1970, Native Americans have gathered at noon on Cole's Hill in 
Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of Mourning on the US 
thanksgiving holiday. Many Native Americans do not celebrate the 
arrival of the Pilgrims and other European settlers. Thanksgiving day 
is a reminder of the genocide of millions of Native people, the theft 
of Native lands, and the relentless assault on Native culture. 
Participants in National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and 
the struggles of Native peoples to survive today. It is a day of 
remembrance and spiritual connection as well as a protest of the 
racism and oppression which Native Americans continue to experience.
