Please join us starting at 6pm for a Gratitude Potluck Dinner. Bring a gift of food to share, whatever you may have; let’s celebrate each other’s company and the bounty of community. We’ll also be sharing history from the native tribes originally from this land, as well as a Haudenosaunee prayer from Deirdre Morris, Earthdance’s Executive Director.
Earthdance rests on the ancestral land of the the Agawams, Pocumtuc, Nipmuck, Wabanaki Confederacy, and the Mohican Indians ~ People of the waters that are never still ~ specifically, the Stockbridge-Munsee Band, who were removed Westward and many of whom now live on a reservation in Wisconsin. Find out more about the history of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band here.
Thanksgiving Day Acknowledgment:
For indigenous peoples across this continent, the national holiday of Thanksgiving Day is considered a National Day of Mourning. In holding this Gratitude Potluck Dinner, we wish to acknowledge the democide and continued suffering of Native Americans that are so easily erased by the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope to use this annual dinner as an opportunity to educate and connect meaningfully within and through the troubled histories of this land.
