Giving Thanks for Indigenous Resistance—Poster of the Week

Giving Thanks for Over 520 Years of Indigenous Resistance

The annual Thanksgiving tradition has obscured the historical reality of Native American genocide: dispossession from their lands, efforts to destroy their cultures, and the slaughter of their communities.

It is important to remember this past as we gather with our families and bear witness to current struggles against genocide and imperialism. Around the world, Indigenous people are continuing to resist and refuse to be erased.
