The first Thanksgiving was 395 years ago and represents a wonderful moment when cultures came together in solidarity and peace; a vision of what America could be. Right now, our First Nation brothers and sisters, representing over 250 distinct nations, are making a standing in North Dakota against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
This pipeline not only threatens sacred sites around the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, it also threatens the water that supplies the reservation.
On Thanksgiving Day, Vinyl Voyage will be playing the best dinner music from our archives while also honoring those who are braving the freezing weather in North Dakota. We will play some Native music along with the calls for action. Hear Native men and women talk about their struggle against the pipeline.
And make a donation.
It's the least we can do on this Thanksgiving 2016.
This special broadcast will begin at 12 noon, Central time.
