Join us as we explore the truth about Thanksgiving from a historical context and indigenous perspective.   Participants will gain knowledge and understanding of:

  • How can we change the narrative around the celebration of thanksgiving while honoring the true history and sacrifices of our ancestors, the indigenous peoples native to the lands we have the privilege to live in?
  • What are meaningful steps leaders, educators, and organizations as a whole take towards decolonizing the holidays?
