Some Thanksgiving stuff we like from Blue Avocado's archives and elsewhere:
- "Thanksgiving: A Native American View," a classic essay by Jacqueline Keeler of the American Indian Child Resource Center in Oakland, California
- "Turkey Giveaway on the Crow Foundation": last year we profiled Peggy Wellknown Buffalo of Montana, and just last week she was named a U.S. Human Rights Hero by the Petra Foundation for her work in social justice
- "The Trouble with Turkey," a look by Bob Kim at the path from farm to table and the nonprofits that line that path
- "The Plymouth Thanksgiving Story and Introduction": when did you last read about the real Thanksgiving? Fourth grade? Here's a fast, highly readable article with the historical facts and a Wampanoag perspective. Print it out and read it on the way home. Click here for the pdf.
- Make a Turkey Day Box . . . print, cut out, and tape together a few of these cute little boxes from About.com (it looks a little blurry on screen but prints fine). A perfect lunchroom activity. Click here for the pdf.
