    Inclusive Thanksgiving messages

    While Thanksgiving is a time for us to gather with friends and family and count our blessings, it’s important to remember that many Native Americans/Indigenous people will be observing the National Day of Mourning—a day to acknowledge the suffering and lives lost at the hands of the pilgrims and other European settlers, to honor Native resilience, and protest against racism and oppression.

    In the name of diversity, equity and inclusion, here are some inclusive Thanksgiving messaging you can use:

    • While Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate gratitude and time with loved ones, we must also remember that many Native Americans observe the National Day of Mourning at this time—to commemorate the Indigenous suffering and lives lost at the hands of the Pilgrims and other eastern Europeans. So as you give thanks and celebrate your traditions, keep this in mind as well and stay sensitive and aware—especially as Native Americans continue to face discrimination today.
    • This Thanksgiving season, we invite you to give thanks. Gather with loved ones. And also to demonstrate sensitivity and respect to Native Americans—who on this day commemorate the suffering of their ancestors and resilience of their culture in the face of adversity, even today.
    • This time of year, there is no shortage of greetings for people to eat lots of food, be surrounded by family, and count their blessings. While we all can find something to be grateful for, there are some that have more blessings than others. To those who don’t have a roof over their head or access to food; to those who don’t have loved ones to celebrate with; and to those who are mourning the hardships of the Indigenous people: we see you and we support you today and always.
    • This Thanksgiving, we encourage you to not only gather with family and friends and express your gratitude, but also to keep in mind those who do not have family, friends, or food to celebrate; and to the Native Americans who observe the Day of Mourning for their people. Give thanks and take action by giving to a charity, donating to a shelter, or participating in a food drive.
