if they can't handle you at your challenging settler colonialism on Thanksgiving they don't deserve you as the NDN on X panel or sitting on X committee or doing X guest lecture.

I like those self congratulatory posts about challenging racism and whatever at Thanksgiving dinner, but be conscious. NDNs are noting the absurdity of you celebrating the day with your settler family on unceded territory without any self-awareness at all.

@bracewell94 @Spaceman_713 Hi, Native Americans have practiced a National Day of Mourning atop Cole’s Hill in Plymouth since 1970. I would recommend reading about that.

@Spaceman_713 Cognitive dissonance and the inability to sacrifice. I don't celebrate it. I'm a First Nations woman with a lot of pride and love for my people. People like to justify their poor behavior but the mythology and nature of Thanksgiving will not change. They should stop.
