Yaʼatʼéeh Késhmish Yazhiʼ!

Thatʼs Navajo for “Happy Thanksgiving.”

The Navajo have a phrase for Happy Thanksgiving because, as I learned on the rez, real indians do celebrate Thanksgiving, complete with paper turkey decorations, because they know itʼs a celebration of community and giving thanks for the things we have, and actually has nothing to do with Pilgrim oppression, and all that is a fairy tale from white east coast college professors who need to see conflict in everything order to keep the grant money coming.

If the Navajo can celebrate Thanksgiving, so can you.
