This intro excerpt is from uaine.org:
United American Indians of New England
"Since 1970, Native Americans have gathered at noon on Cole's Hill in Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of
Mourning on the US thanksgiving holiday. Many Native Americans do not celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims and
other European settlers. Thanksgiving day is a reminder of the genocide of millions of Native people, the theft of
Native lands, and the relentless assault on Native culture. Participants in National Day of Mourning honor Native
ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today. It is a day of remembrance and spiritual connection
as well as a protest of the racism and oppression which Native Americans continue to experience."
