The history of the traditional “Thanksgiving” holiday is deeply rooted in colonialism. The erasure of Native narratives contributes to the invisibility of Native people and issues.
By recognizing and sharing the true history of Thanksgiving (see links below!), we as a community can affirm the experiences of Native people and do a better job of tackling the systemic issues that they have faced (and continue to face) as a result.
At Stone Soup we are practicing "both/and" thinking -- BOTH the reality of the manufactured holiday that erases the violence against indigenous people AND the beauty and necessity of giving thanks and appreciating each other’s gifts as the harvest ends.
Every day at Stone Soup is a day of giving thanks. Let this particular day be a time to acknowledge, celebrate, and honor Indigenous resistance, while we share a delicious meal that welcomes everyone.
