Bon Appitete!

This looks like a real close resemblance of the 1st Thanksgiving!

Peace ~ It's the Wisdom, Culture/Freedom day to the month in accordance with the Supreme Mathematics. Wisdom is the tool (sword) or a tool to express and teach the Culture of the originalman that he is God. This in it's own is a Free-dome, a lift of the mystery god off your shoulders. Showing and proving to born Equality that we (God's & Earth's) are here to civilize all.

Thanksgiving. Turkey and dressing, pumpkin pie and football. Parents going to school to see their children in plays about grateful Pilgrims and their Native benefactors. The age old tale of the Indians bringing food to feed the starving Pilgrims.

I hate to be the one to burst the bubble but that story is a lie. One started to cover what really happened all those years ago.

The real story was researched by William B. Newell, former chairman of the University of Connecticut Anthropology Department. His sources included Documents of Holland, 13 volume colonial documentary. History, letters and reports from colonial officials to their superiors and the King of England, and the private papers of Sir William Johnson who was the British Indian Agent for the New York colony for 30 years. Here is what Newell discovered about the "day of thanksgiving".

The year was 1637; 700 men, woman and children of the Peqot Tribe gathered for their annual "Green Corn Dance" in the area that is now known as Groton, Conn.

While they were gathered in this place of meeting, they were surrounded and attacked b mercenaries of the English and Dutch. The Indians were ordered from the building and as they came forth, they were shot down. The rest were burned alive in the building.

The next day, the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony declared "a day of thanksgiving" thanking god that they had eliminated over 700 men, women and children. For the next 100 years, every "thanksgiving day" ordained by a Governor or President was to honor that victory, thanking god that the battle had been won.

When you are gathered at that table laden with food, family and friends gathered around it, look at the turkey, food and drinks and get a mental picture of what really happened.
