The Meme-ing of Thanksgiving

ICTMN Staff
11/24/12

Can any holiday or event happen these days without people sharing a bunch of snarky or poignant images on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr?

Nope—and that's a good thing. It is Thanksgiving Day, and Thanksgiving is a holiday that celebrates an idealized version of history—it's history as people wish it had happened.

Whatever your reaction to Thanksgiving -- whether it's outrage or bemused acceptance -- rest assured you are not alone. Someone else out there feels the way you do, and they've expressed their feelings in jpeg form.

Here are some Thanksgiving-themed images that crossed the ICTMN radar:

I am not a Native American and actually not a Liberal either. However, I am proud for your people to have survived and endured and are working very hard to educate others, and re-discover heritage and traditions. I do question some of the posters/cards above in that the Spanish came to the 'New World" first and spread disease which resulted in (to the best of my understanding) huge population losses for Native American communities but there is no mention of this. Also, why the association/kinship that I gather from above, with Illegal aliens from Mexico who happen to have Central American Indian blood? Their ancestors were not at all like Native American Tribes who were (again to the best of my understanding) wonderful stewards of flora and fauna and the first real conservationists and who didn't lust for blood and practice the savage rituals that the Central American Indians did? Just some thoughts from White guy descended from Eastern Europeans who came in the late 1800's.

I would think maybe some of anonymous statements regarding Spanish could be true. One thing non-Indians should remember it is our story. The winners of the war tell their story. It will never change. Mother earth is our traditional church. Holy wars have been on many years before we came. Annoys you can think about these things.
