About This Event


So what do most Americans believe happened on that first Thanksgiving Day? Most still cling to what they learned in elementary school. The Pilgrims sat down with Indians for a big meal of turkey, cornbread, cranberries and pumpkin pie. The Pilgrims dressed in black, and the Indians wore feathers and colorful beads. In fact, many Americans today still recall if they were "pilgrims" or "Indians" in their school pageants. It's a charming story, but it's a myth. To be sure, it's a powerful one -- one that will be repeated many times this November. We will explore several different perspectives and discuss the impact of this pervasive American myth.

Sponsored by the IUPUI Native American Student Alliance, IUPUI Native American Faculty Staff Council and IUPUI American Indian Programs.
