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 Europeean 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 
that Native Americans continue to experience.

Join us as we dedicate the 46th National Day of Mourning to our brother, 
Native political prisoner Leonard Peltier. Add your voice to the 
millions world-wide who demand his freedom. Help us in our struggle to 
create a true awareness of Native peoples and demonstrate the unity of 
Indigenous peoples internationally. Help shatter the untrue glass image 
of the Pilgrims and the unjust system based on racism, sexism, 
homophobia and war.
