John Trudell makes a Thanksgiving dinner address on November 30, 1980.
John Trudell is an acclaimed poet, national recording artist, actor and activist whose international following reflects the universal language of his words, work and message. Trudell (Santee Sioux) was a spokesperson for the Indian of All Tribes occupation of Alcatraz Island from 1969 to 1971. He then worked with the American Indian Movement (AIM), serving as Chairman of AIM from 1973 to 1979. In February of 1979, a fire of unknown origin killed Trudell’s wife, three children and mother-in-law. It was through this horrific tragedy that Trudell began to find his voice as an artist and poet, writing, in his words, "to stay connected to this reality."

Reconsidering the Origins of Thanksgiving
Produced by Dr. J. KehaulaniKauanui, WESU, Middletown, CT.

What are the origins of the Thanksgiving holiday in the US?

Some Americans commemorate a harvest feast celebrated in 1621 at Plymouth between the Wampanoag and the Pilgrims. Then, there is the 1637 proclamation by Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop, who claimed the first official "a Day of Thanksgiving" to celebrate the colonists who massacred the Pequots at Mystic, Connecticut. These are two very different occasions, one an indigenous feast, and the other a white settler celebration of a genocidal campaign. How are these different narratives alternately celebrated and erased? How was the creation of Thanksgiving as a national holiday a way of solidifying American national identity? This show explores the politics of Thanksgiving with interviews that provide two very different perspectives. Join host Dr. J. Kehaulani Kauanui, and guests, Ramona Nosapocket Peters (Mashpee Wampanoag), cultural worker and artist, and Moonanum James (Aquinnah Wampanoag), co-leader of the United American Indians of New England, who hosts an annual "National Day of Mourning," on Cole Hill, MA, as an alternative.
