Why Native Americans observe a "National Day of Mourning" for Thanksgiving
Did "the Pilgrims" land on Plymouth Rock?
(HuffPost) For indigenous communities, "Thanksgiving" is a grievous reminder of loss. HuffPost visited Plymouth, Massachusetts, to speak to Moonanum James with the United American Indians of New England for the annual National Day of Mourning. The goal is to get the history right in spite of the government propaganda we are annually fed.

Fallacy of "official" history
Walt Disney Nazi German propaganda reel.
Pilgrims Disaffected separatists left the Church of England. They boarded the Mayflower and headed for Plymouth but reached Cape Cod. They signed the Mayflower Compact [the first governmental document]....

The time of the formation of the Church of England was a time of angry men and women and, whereas some were okay with these religious changes, others sought to escape. In the end, many English left for Holland, in the Netherlands.

Thou shalt not question history!
Unwelcome European immigrant-aliens faced their first winter here. For English Settlers, the trip to [a fully inhabited] America was an awful journey.

One of the many things that went wrong was that their boat, the Mayflower, went off course, landing them in Cape Cod. As winter was fast approaching, they docked on Cape Cod. Squanto helped them [survive].

[The new Settlers gave thanks for a massacre of 700 Natives -- and this is celebrated as Thanksgiving. This "thanks" came in the form of invasion, disease, squatting on stolen land, a slow genocide of men, women, and children, enslaving Natives, and introducing the foreign concept of land ownership to justify it all].
