Today I was asked by a coworker (who always asks questions regarding native culture) if native Americans celebrate Thanksgiving or do we have our own celebrations? I answered that i do eat turkey, but I give thanks everyday, not just once a year. The conversation turned into how the natives helped the pilgrims, and from there touched on native history not spoken of during Columbus Day & Thanksgiving. My coworker says “oh not this again! I only asked for a simple answer!” I have decided to quit getting myself into these conversations. I’m sorry my history and truths are not the answers you were looking for. Enjoy your turkey and dressing.
