"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots." -Marcus Garvey
This Thanksgiving, with such horrible things happening to our First Nations siblings, I found a story that brings me hope, reminds us of our history of solidarity and fighting for liberation, the land, and what is right. This is the story of the first attempted European colony on contemporary US land. It's a surprising story about solidarity that places Black and Indigenous people at the root of what it means to be American.
Give thanks as a verb and support Standing Rock this Thanksgiving:
