IDEAS ON TAP: Demystifying Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at 6:00pm

Virtual Event

The story of the Mayflower landing is part of the founding mythology of the USA and has been taught as the "birthplace of a country" since the 19th century. However, that story provides only one perspective on the history of colonization. Join Chris Newell, Passamaquoddy author and director of education at the Akomawt Educational Initiative, for a more balanced retelling of the 1621 landing, the Plimoth Thanksgiving, and their aftermath.

If You Lived During Plimoth Thanksgiving (hyperlink: https://kids.scholastic.com/kids/book/if-you-lived-during-the-plimouth-than…) will be released on November 2, 2021.
