Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of the genocide of millions of our people, the thelf of our ancestors lands and the relentless assult on our culture.Feats of gratitude, and thanks have been a part of Indian culture for thousands of years. In Lakota culture,it’s called a Wopila,in Navajo,its Hozhoni;in Cherokee,it’s Selu i-tse-i; and in Ho-Chunk it’s Wicawas warocu sto waroc. Each Indian nation celebrates its own form of Thanksgiving. But for Indian culture,Thanksgiving doesn’t end when the dishes are put away. It is something we celbirtebrate all year long_____at the birth of a baby, at the conclusion of a safe journey, or when moving into a new home.Giving is a way of life for Indian people.Generosity is a way of sharing the goodness such as wealth, honors, and plentful food. “Richard B. Williams(Oglala Lakota) is a historian, educator and president/CEO of American Indian College Fundation. This is only part of the true story of Thanksgiving.
