About 200 Native Americans and their supporters gathered on Cole’s Hill overlooking Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Massachusetts to acknowledge what Thanksgiving Day means to them. Organized by United American Indians of New England, which is made up mostly of Wampanoag and Mashpee nations, they call this event The National Day of Mourning. The gathering has been an annual event since 1970. Chuck Rosina was there and sent this Street Beat dispatch.
