YouTube whipped out a new level of corporate pandering on Thanksgiving Day by promoting “Unthanksgiving.” The tweet got demolished in the replies and recevied far more quote tweets and replies than it did likes and retweets.
For Indigenous and Native Americans, the fourth Thursday of November is dedicated to Indigenous history, activism, and resistance. It’s called Unthanksgiving.
Unthanksgiving is about acknowledging, educating, and honoring centuries of Indigenous resistance. Coinciding with New England’s National Day of Mourning, Unthanksgiving activates Alcatraz Island, the site of a 19-month occupation by Bay Area Natives in 1969.
