It’s Turkey Day again this Thursday, that time of year when Americans the world over gather for an all-afternoon calorie fest to commemorate that first winter in the New World, when thanks to lots of help from the First Nation people of the land, the pilgrims enjoyed their first harvest. Unfortunately, it’s a very surreal and ironic Thanksgiving this year, with peaceful Native American protestors at Standing Rock Reservation fighting against big oil. See how you can help here before you sit down to dinner.
