In our home, we celebrate Thanksgiving as a day to be thankful for our many blessings and to come together as a family, but we do not celebrate the historical significance of the whole idea, really. As mentioned, we also do not “celebrate” Columbus day. Still, we don’t actively protest it either or make it a day of bitterness or angry way-after-the-fact-protest, though we may slightly scoff at the idea (especially of Columbus day, just out of sheer ridiculousness of asking Natives to celebrate it) if actually asked or prodded about it.

Disclaimer: I am of Native ancestry (my mother grew up on a reservation in MN, and our native culture was very important to us growing up – we danced in powwows, spent weeks in the summer on the reservation visiting family, etc), but I did not grow up on a reservation. I am one of the minority of closely-tied-to-reservations Natives who are very fortunate in life. So I won’t speak for those who are in the bad situations, who may still protest and feel strongly about these holidays or the injustices done as a whole to the People in centuries past – I can’t, But, I can tell you that we still celebrated Thanksgiving with my mom’s family, and they still do each year too, using it as a day to be close to family and celebrate together, being thankful for their blessings
