Since 1970, Native Americans have gathered at noon on Cole's Hill in 
Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of Mourning onthe 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.
