This sourcebook of essays, speeches, stories and activities will help teachers and students think critically about what has been, and continues to be, taught as the “first Thanksgiving.

For Native peoples, thanksgiving comes not once a year, but always, for all the gifts of life. All Native nations have celebrations of the harvest that come from very ancient tradition. The U.S. holiday celebrates and perpetuates a myth which has almost nothing to do with reality, and is a bitter reminder for all Native people of 500 years of betrayal returned for friendship. This sourcebook of essays, speeches, poetry, stories and activities will help teachers and students think critically about what has been, and continues to be, taught as the “first“ thanksgiving.
