NOW IN OUR 10TH YEAR!
I found this information on line today looking for a nice way to say "Happy Thanksgiving" to all who post info here on 12160 ~ Thank you all for all your dedicated truth seeking and sharing it has been a bounty of information for me and an aide in my personal quest for truth this past year ;) we all love visual aids so here's a few
HAPPY THANKSGIVING ~ :)
At the first Thanksgiving there were 53 pilgrims and 90 Native Americans who feasted for three days. Yet when you look at the First Thanksgiving history, art shows mostly pilgrims outfitted in clothing that they probably didn’t wear and a small amount of Native Americans. The depicted scenes irk me as it’s all about the pilgrims and totally skewed — or perhaps screwed which is where the pilgrims would have been without help from Native Americans. The new colonists were suffering illness and malnutrition, and most likely would not have survived had it not been for Native American, Squanto, a member of the Pawtuxet tribe. Squanto helped forge an alliance between the settlers and the Wampanoag tribe. So this is a bit different for a Thanksgiving post, but hey what can I say other than be thankful and hope you enjoy the very beautifully and brightly-colored pow wows. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Once upon a time, long before white settlers came to the New World, Native Americans had many celebrations to honor the seasons such as Harvest Time in the fall. We don’t hear about that much, instead the focus is on Thanksgiving. We do hear about pow wows which honor the old Native American ways, yet are social events that both Native Americans and non-Native Americans attend to dance, to sing, and to honor culture and a rich heritage. Since we’ve done a trio of Navajo Nation tributes, we thought a Thanksgiving Pow Wow might be a cool way to celebrate. Photo #1 ‘The First Thanksgiving at Plymouth’ (1914) by Jennie A.
