To many Natives Americans.." Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of the genocide of millions of their people, the theft of their lands, and the relentless assault on their culture. Participants in a National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today. It is a day of remembrance and spiritual connection as well as a protest of the racism and oppression which Native Americans continue to experience."
Have camped at Blackwoods Campground, with friends and kids 4 times. Days filled with hikes, walks, biking, swimming, eating, relaxing around the fire, laughing together in some of the most scenic places in North America. No wonder we all want to go again!
