Thanksgiving / National Day Of Mourning

No need to explain Thanksgiving. Just remember how much we have to be thankful about - can you think of anywhere else you would prefer to live? Most of us have plenty. We even have a 5* gourmet category for the many foods we prepare and consume. Many have great families. We have the Dawgs and numerous other entertainment options. Plenty to be thankful for.

To all of Dawg Nation - enjoy!!

NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING

This was a new one for me. National Day of Mourning is observed annually on the fourth Thursday in November.

The organizers of this observance consider Thanksgiving Day as a continued reminder of the democide and suffering of Native American people. Since 1970, participants in the National Day of Mourning have honored Native ancestors and their struggles to survive today. Part of the mission behind the event is to educate Americans about the history of Thanksgiving. 

Organized by United American Indians of New England (UAINE) during a period of Native American activism, the march has brought about revisions in the depiction of United States history and government and settler relationships with Native American peoples as well as a renewed appreciation for their culture.
