Pymouth, Mass.-Nov. 26, 2015:
I took some video and photos of the Native American
National Day Of Mourning in Plymouth, Mass., yesterday,
Thanksgiving(scroll down for links).
It was a perfect day weather-wise and I will estimate
about 700 people attended, including 2 buses of people
from New York City.
Here is the event description from the Day Of Mourning
facebook page and the United American Indians of New England
web site . This year was the 46th Day of Mourning and I have been
attending since 1987.----

"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 that Native Americans continue to experience.

Join us as we dedicate the 46th National Day of Mourning to our brother, Native political prisoner Leonard Peltier. Add your voice to the millions world-wide who demand his freedom. Help us in our struggle to create a true awareness of Native peoples and demonstrate the unity of Indigenous peoples internationally. Help shatter the untrue glass image of the Pilgrims and the unjust system based on racism, sexism, homophobia and war."
