50th National Day of Mourning

When: Thursday, November 28, 2019, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Where: Coles Hill • Plymouth

Since 1970, Native Americans and our supporters have gathered at noon on Cole’s Hill in Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of Mourning on the US thanksgiving holiday. Many Native Americans do not celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims and other European settlers.

Participants in National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today.
