2008 National Day of
Mourning Orientation
Since 1970, Native
Americans have gathered at noon on Cole's Hill in Plymouth 
to commemorate a National Day of Mourning on the US thanksgiving holiday.
Many Native Americans do not celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims and
other European settlers. Thanksgiving day is a reminder of the genocide
of millions of Native people, the theft of Native lands, and the
relentless assault on Native culture. Participants in National Day of
Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to
survive today. It is a day of remembrance and spiritual connection as
well as a protest of the racism and oppression which Native Americans
continue to experience.

Join us as we
dedicate the 38th National Day of Mourning to our brother, Native
political prisoner Leonard Peltier. Add your voice to the millions
world-wide who demand his freedom. Help us in our struggle to create a
true awareness of Native peoples and demonstrate the unity of
Indigenous peoples internationally. Help shatter the untrue glass image
of the Pilgrims and the unjust system based on racism, sexism,
homophobia and war.
