Days to go:
The National Day of Mourning is an occasion of remembrance and reflection. This event provides an alternative perspective to the traditional American Thanksgiving holiday narrative, shedding light on the historical and ongoing struggles of Native American communities.
The National Day of Mourning was first recognized in 1970, initiated by the United American Indians of New England. It coincided with the 350th anniversary of the Mayflower's landing, serving to counteract the celebratory nature surrounding the Pilgrims' settlement, which brought devastation to indigenous tribes. Over time, the event has evolved into a profound commemoration of Native American history and a public protest against the systemic difficulties their communities continue to face.
This commemorative day is chiefly marked in Plymouth, Massachusetts, involving a march through the town, speeches, and a communal meal. The National Day of Mourning is observed yearly on the same day as Thanksgiving, occurring on the fourth Thursday of November.
