November, National Native American Heritage Month offers many opportunities to move past the one-dimensional representations of Native Americans. Stories told about the first Thanksgiving often perpetuate harmful stereotypes and racism. It is important to set the record straight, acknowledge Native Peoples, debunk myths, and show Native Americans as contemporary people with dynamic thriving cultures who have profoundly impacted our current food system. 

Decolonize Your Thanksgiving and make it an opportunity to go beyond the harmful “pilgrims and Indians” narrative and focus on common values: generosity, gratitude, community, and good food.
