Me too. The construction paper feather and pilgrim hats in fourth grade Thanksgiving Class feels like a distant memory when you learn about some of the atrocities committed on BOTH sides… but like any war, once it gets started.. it’s gets nasty. Of course, Western Europeans were the first aggressors and when they became more powerful – powerful enough at the time of the trail of tears… it was.. well, sickening, and the native americans had fully lost by that point.

last thanksgiving, I counted how many versions there were of the Thanksgiving Story. I counted 17 unique distinct tellings of the tale, some radically different from each other.
