    Considering the injustices wrought upon Native Americans by European settlers and their descendants, how do Native Americans today feel about Thanksgiving?

    It’s just a day to be thankful for the harvest at the end of the season. I have no resentment or negative feelings about the holiday.

    Hello, I am part Native American and it is a large part of my life. I go to Pow Wows every year and I have a full blown American Indian Uncle straight from the rez. We all have thanksgiving dinner and the converstaions usually vary from college to some talk about what was really eaten on the first day of the actual dinner with the pilgrims. There is some anger towards the past but for the most part we just like to eat pie and frie bread.
