NASO

As Native American Heritage Month draws to a close, and we look forward to celebrating Thanksgiving this week, NASO would like to take a moment to reflect on this holiday, both its history and its current practice.  Although the holiday is often depicted as a harmonious gathering between the Wampanoag Indians and the Pilgrims, Thanksgiving was officially established in its current form in 1863 by President Abraham Lincoln in an attempt to reunite the nation during the Civil War.1  Most historical accounts of Thanksgiving do not describe the true nature of the early relationship between the Pilgrims and Native peoples in this area, which included war and land dispossession, such as King Phillips War of 1675.

 

Although Thanksgiving is today a meaningful holiday in which we gather with family and friends to give thanks, it is important not to forget the historical realities behind this holiday.  We invite you to learn more about this history today at 12:30pm in FXB G13, where NASO will welcome Ramona Peters, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Mashpee Wampanoag.  Indian tacos will be provided!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, NASO would like to express gratitude to several individuals and offices for their support this Native American Heritage Month.  We thank the Office of Student Affairs, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Harvard University Native American Program for their support with logistics and funding for our events.  We also thank Meredith Rosenthal, Katherine Worthington, Dale Trevino, Joel-Michael Martin, Venus Israni, and Leah Kane for their support and efforts in helping with this month.

We hope that you will continue to learn and explore about Native cultures and issues moving forward.  NASO will be engaging with the HSPH community through the rest of the year, and, as always, you can learn more and get involved with Harvard-wide activities through the Harvard University Native American Program.
