For many Americans, Thanksgiving is a time of celebration, family gatherings, and big traditional dinners. However, for many Native Americans there simply isn't much to celebrate.

I find it amazing that the Sioux would really think that it celebrating time. What have they,poor beleagured people, have to be thankful for. It was with the arrival of the Mayflower that all their troubles began and haven't ended yet except for people like you and I who send off petitions occasionally for their betterment. The fact is noboby really cares, lest of all the Govt. Maybe Obama will be the answere to their predicement

Denise T...What you do not understand is that the Sioux (and ALL American Indians)celebrate and give thanks EVERY day, no matter the circumstances! You say that nobody cares, and yet you see this thread, this website of help, and many people are responding. I see that you live accross the "Big Water"...I think you do not have a true understanding of this situation, but I thank you for your input. Walk In Beauty, Denise!

So the Sioux and all Amerindians celebrate and give thanks every day.

May we ask: Celebrating what and giving thanks to whom?

Lars, there is so much to be grateful for! But, since worship/gratitude are of a personal nature, you would probably have to ask each individual person those questions...

The Native American peoples are very special and wise humans...

It's a pity they don't get the respect they deserve!! They are so much more evolved than people think.

Money and power don't make you better or more evolved than the rest - they only make you richer and more socially powerful!

I don't know much about their culture and ways but I have this impression that they truly lived in harmony with the environment, respected all forms of life and that there was equality among men and women inside each tribe!
Unfortunately I can't say the same about our 'civilised' society!

I am happy to say that I sent money a week ago. If I can sit down to a wholesome meal, than these honorable First Americans should also.
