    My family is divided on the whole Thanksgiving thing. Some of them say that Thanksgiving is only about the beginning of the decline of the Human Beings in the Americas; what with all sorts of hideous diseases, famine and slaughter brought to the "New World" by the Europeans. It was only "new" to those dumbasses anyway because we'd been living in it for something around 20,000 years.

    The Europeans just got lost on the way to India.

    The European branch of the family says things like, "Aw, you stupid shits, you didn't even use the Wheel!"

    The Human Beings then reply with stuff like, "One sentence, motha: "Little Big Horn!"

    European: "Yeah, you bow-and-arrow primitives!"

    Human Being: "Yeah, shot your ass right in the back so we could steal your Winchesters! EAT LEAD WHITE BOY!"

    European: "Get your ass back to the reservation!"

    This sort of bantering goes on while dinner is being prepared and this years feast was a real winner!

    Turkey, naturally, brown potatoes in the skin, sweet corn, bison (buffalo, to you!) steaks and ribs done up on the barbie, pumpkin pie, apple pie, cooked squash, home-made wine and lots of beer; one distant cousin just moved here from the home places in Kentucky and he brought some Mason jars of clear liquid which I am certain must be some kind of rocket fuel, 'cause it'll sure light you up!

    They've got the fire going now; burning bright and them drunken Indians and them drunken White Boys are all gonna be dancin' in the firelight! Occasionally one or two fall into the fire but we just drag'em out, throw on a little water and they go right on like nothing happened. Haven't lost anyone yet!

    Needless to say, the girls are the best dancers and real easy on the eyes, as it were!

    Everyone is giving thanks in their own way for something, I suppose and it's all good, so Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

    Mmmmmmm....................

    ............Things are a bit weird but the Elders, of which there are few, understand the necessity for my connection to the internet and although they don't like it, are allowing me a sort of blow-by-blow accounting of this evening's events.

    I have been offered the Cup of Enlightenment.

    There are so few Elders now and Long Feathers is nearly 100..................

    The next one, in terms of age is Feather Man, who is in his 80s, we think.

    They are brothers.

    I think that I will see you all tomorrow sometime or maybe the next day as I cannot deny my people or my heritage.

    I am being postulated as an Elder; I am not worthy.

    I will drink of the cup, though and let you know of the results.

    Thank you for your kindness and they are calling now.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    As one who is of Cherokee Indian heritage (great grandmothers) and English, Scottish, and French.......I understand that are many implications of the larger picture....

    I embody both sides of the equation and personally, I look at the holiday as one in which the Indians saved settlers and both came together at that moment.

    The rest is open to speculation and conjecture......

    I am an American. I claim that as both the Native American and the Caucasian......Americans of all races should celebrate the Holiday....it is a time of acknowledging that it is ok to be thankful for all that we have and the role Native Americans had in giving aid to some of the first settlers.....

    With all of the negative things going on, such as Terrorism in India (sad to see a Democracy come under attack by beings that only preach hate and bring misery to those who disagree with them)......so, I look at Thanksgiving as a time when Americans give thanks for all that we have. (And yes, I realize that we are going thru some tough economic times......but, we have survived worse).....

    uptown, good luck on your journey......

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!
