About the photo: Some American Indians consider Thanksgiving a day of mourning. Although many consider Thanksgiving a day for rejoicing, a dissenting view from some Native Americans holds that depictions of the "First Thanksgiving," with Pilgrims and natives celebrating the harvest in 1621, overlooks the long history of suffering, theft of lands, disease and wars that followed. This year, the day after Thanksgiving has been proclaimed as Native American Heritage Day.
