You're invited to a special Gratitude Potluck Dinner as part of a Gratitude Weekend at Earthdance, which also includes the Gratitude Jam & Workshop Celebration 2019. 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 (see below), as well as a Haudenosaunee prayer. Free & open to all; families & newcomers welcome.
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.
Earthdance rests on the ancestral land of 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.
