Much of the Thanksgiving story focuses on a peaceful, cross-cultural exchange between the "Pilgrims and Indians." While it's true that the Wampanoag and the Planters shared in a harvest celebration, within fifty years, the Wampanoag would no longer be a free people. For some Native Americans, Thanksgiving is no cause for celebration, but rather serves as a reminder of colonization's devastating impact on indigenous peoples. Join us for this thought-provoking workshop to examine how diverse groups can perceive shared experiences differently and to consider the meaning of the Thanksgiving holiday. We’ll be in room A227 at 12:00 p.m. (You can even bring your lunch along!)
