Im too much of a wuss. I have Native American heritage and cant shake all of the stories told to me by my family growing up. Natives see that holiday VERY different than Caucasians.

Like Caucasians saw Africans for the past century.

Slightly slavish.

Sounds like fun (and a lot of good food). Sadly, I don't live in Las Vegas or I'd go.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Well, to be fair, this event is called ThanksLIVING not Thanksgiving and is held the weekend before American Thanksgiving. We call it a compassionate harvest-themed meal.

To your point about "Caucasians" you might want to start using the term "white" and read:
