Native Americans observe National Day of Mourning


An annual protest has been held in Plymouth, Massachusetts, where Native Americans decried the arrival of the pilgrims in 1620. The United American Indians of New England had declared Thanksgiving Day to be a national day of mourning. Members of the wampanoag tribe mourn the arrival of the colonists accusing them of bringing illness, racism and oppression to Native American people. This is kisha James. When people celebrate the myth of Thanksgiving, they are not only erasing our genocide, but also celebrating it. The group is calling for better policies to protect Native Americans and land restitution. I'm Jackie Quinn
