While I whole-heartedly embrace my cultural identity as a Mayflower descendant, I also know things didn't stay perfectly peachy between our ancestors and the Native Americans. Sad, but true. This video is pretty darn cute. :)
Great! Except why does the black kid keep handing out the small pox blankets? he should have been a slave to complete the picture.
Yeah, I agree, @Wendy. Funny how they kept saying, "We trust you." They probably did.@Kristin, I'm still trying to figure out what a "smallpox blanket" is. Maybe that was his job? That part kind of confused me.
The British distributed small pox infected blankets to the indians to infect and thus kill them off. here's a link to a page with quotes from letters of the day. http://academic.udayton.edu/health/syllabi/bioterrorism/00intro02.htm
Oh my goodness; that video was funny! The truth about Thanksgiving is actually sad, but we never seem to remember that. Instead we just talk about turkeys.
