Native Americans say they “have no reason to celebrate” Thanksgiving

373

Native Americans spoke out about Thanksgiving saying, they “have no reason to celebrate.”

And that is clear as a day. For Indians, celebrating Thanksgiving is the same as celebrating the Holocaust for Jews. While the whole US is divided by the racism, it is somehow forgotten how many indigenous people of America have been suffering racism for years.

On Thursday, the members of Indian tribes from all over New England gathered in the seaside town of Plymouth to mourn their ancestors around the world who have suffered from racism and abuse for centuries, according to FOX News portal.

 Thursday's National Day of Mourning is a reminder of the "diseases and oppression" that they say European settlers brought to North America.

"There is no reason for the indigenous people to celebrate the arrival of the colonists," said Kisha James, a representative of the Aquinnah Wampanoag Indian ethnic group.
