The land on the Sioux Nation at Standing Rock has been targeted.  Hunkpapa Lakota and Yanktonai Dakota Native American reservations in North Dakota and South Dakota.

Keep in mind kids, Thanksgiving is about when the First Nation of Wampanoag, and Chief Massasoit who helped the folks who were known as "Pilgrims."  The majority of Pilgrims left England in search of RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, they were tired of being under the Catholic Church and the Church of England.  Puritans and Quakers, for the most part, left for their "new world."  There were inhabitants here already.  

The United States is the first country to establish a National Holiday to GIVE THANKS.

I give thanks for that.

After Two Wars, Standing Rock is the First Time I Served the American People

'I’ve been on the wrong side of history'

 

By Will Griffin

I was in Iraq when President Bush announced the “surge” in January 2007. I was in Afghanistan when President Obama announced the “surge” in December 2009. But it wasn’t until I visited Standing Rock in October 2016 when I actually served the American people. This time, instead of fighting for corporate interests, I was fighting for the people.  . . .

The first of the year there were some "occupiers" who took over Federal land, and I was opposed to this seige.  The Giddy-Up Siege in MalheurCounty

I end the year (more or less) with support for the First Nations.  The pipeline threatens their ONLY WATER SUPPLY, the Missouri River.

FIRST THANKSGIVING?  

The first thanksgiving feast was celebrated in 1621 by the pilgrims of the Plymouth colony along with about ninety Indians. The Pilgrims had suffered through a devastating winter in which nearly half their number died. Without the help of the Indians, all would have perished.
