PWNA compiles the favorite stories from Indian Country, covering Thanksgiving, Native American myths and misconceptions, and Native cultures, foods and relics.
“I tell them, you listen to the Indian version and then you’ll understand why some people don’t celebrate [Thanksgiving].” Join PWNA in supporting a positive holiday for Native American families.
We accomplished a lot in 2016. Join us in welcoming 2017 with open arms and keeping up with our work here on the blog, and on our social media channels: Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
Linking the national Native American Heritage Day to Thanksgiving is fitting, given the contributions of American Indians that long preceded the first harvest of the pilgrims.
Annually, PWNA’s reservation partners request thousands of Thanksgiving meals, and this year, PWNA is providing enough food for just over 38,000 people in the Northern Plains and Southwest.
To grasp the untold story after the first Thanksgiving, one need only look at realities on the reservations and realize that history and policies, then and now, have shaped the most adverse challenges of modern Native life. To learn more, go to www.PWNA4hope.org,
