2019 Day of Mourning in Plymouth, MA

On November 28th, 2019 (Thanksgiving Day), the United American Indians of New England will be holding the 50th annual National Day of Mourning Event in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This event serves as a reminder of the genocide of millions of Native People, the theft of Native lands, and the relentless assault on Native culture. Participants in this event honor the ancestors of Native people and commemorate the struggle still being faced by Indigenous people today.

This event will take place at 12:00 PM EST on Coles Hill in Plymouth, MA and will feature Native speakers to discuss these issues. For the third year, the North American Megadam Resistance Alliance will be hosting an Indigenous speaker from Canada to discuss the impacts of Megadams on their community. Join us on this date to learn more about these issues and take part in honoring and respecting the Native land that we are on.
