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
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
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.
