Another map that could be included in trying to explain American Thanksgiving is to show the current reservations of Native Americans across the country. In doing so, this shows the truth of the conquest and murder of the Native Americans that was committed by European settlers and not the “Thanksgiving story” of everyone getting along. In showing this or even the territory violations the United States has committed against land treaties with Native tribes can shed on the ugly truth of the holiday and to try and make things right.
