***SUPPORT NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING Nov 22, 2018***
Since 1970, Native Americans and their supporters 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.
