Unitarian Universalism’s history is directly connected to the creation of the mythos supporting the US Thanksgiving holiday and the historically inaccurate and harmful colonial narrative of “Pilgrims and the Indians.” In recent years, many UUs have made a commitment to reconsider the cultural and colonial foundations of this tradition, in counsel and relationship with First Nations and Indigenous communities. This service, which was first presented virtually in 2021, centering Indigenous people and cultures, is an invitation to come together in that spirit. This service is presented by many Indigenous Unitarian Universalists in collaboration with Relations from local Tribal Communities, the UU Ministry for Earth & Side With Love.
This service will be a mix of pre-recorded elements on video and live elements presented by People’s people.
