National Day of Mourning in Plymouth dedicated to Leonard Peltier 11/24/05

Forwarded from LPDC:

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 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.
