Happy ThanksTAKING

Instead of giving thanks this year, as people from all walks of life, lets TAKE thanks by using our political power as residents/citizens/tax payers, etc. to make a stand against the inhumane treatment of Native American people that still continues to this day.

Because history is always written by the winner, click here for a comprehensive view of the institutionalization of this holiday, the background, and the people involved. There's more to it than eating turkey.

Click here for a list of non-profits that cater to the Native American community. Find one in your area and get involved--It's as easy as picking up the phone and asking what you can do to help.
