40th NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING


By United American Indians of New England/LPSG

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.
