Everyone agrees that the original Americans did the Native Americans dirty.
They were here first, they were kind and generous to those Americans and was slaughtered for it. I always remember that while giving thanks at Thanksgiving, because our history isn’t always pretty and we can’t bury it in the sand.
Colin Kaepernick spent his thanksgiving at The Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering at Alcatraz Island.
You can check out what he had to say below.
Today, I was on Alcatraz Island at the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering, in solidarity with those celebrating their culture and paying respects to those that participated in the 19 month occupation of Alcatraz in an effort to force 🇺🇸 to honor the Treaty of Fort Laramie. pic.twitter.com/KdNtY3dp72
