On my way spend Thanksgiving with my brother in New York City. I don’t like the implications of this holiday’s creation (I.e. telling false narratives about the relationship between Native Americans and European colonists by focusing on one isolated incident in order to distract from a complicated and overwhelmingly exploitive history 🙃), BUT I really enjoy what it’s come to mean.
Practicing gratitude is healthy is important fuel to have when facing a frustrating world. I’m looking forward to spending some time with my brother and being in a new place. Sending you all wishes for a restorative, safe, and happy Thanksgiving. ❤️ #smashEurocentricHistoricalNarratives
