Never been to this site before but found it looking for the Native American Tea products that my sister and I used to buy at an Indian Trading Post that was off of Route 81 going through Virginia, west of the Shenandoah Valley. This place always had a teepee sitting on a platform and we found out that they usually had Pow Wows there. Although we were never able to visit when one of the Pow Wows actually occurred, our families always stopped to buy items there. That is where we both bought our Native American Tea products. The store has now been turned into a flea market, of all things, and we are really discouraged. It was awesome to look at the American Indian handywork and other products. Finally, I was able to find the name of the company that made the teas and then the search began for our purchase. Manataka had this sale going on and it was made available at a lower price than ordering from the manufacturer. The other items that are offered have also caught my attention and I plan on forwarding this information on to my sister! Thank you, Manataka! I hope this becomes a "friendship"!

I am not Native American, but I strive to learn about the true history of North America. After reading your story about the true Thanksgiving, I have to say that I am disgusted. I've heard stories of what really went on but none specific. I am grateful to have read your story and learn more about what was done by the English settlers. I see Thanksgiving not as a time to remember the dinner of the Pilgrims and the "Indians" but more so to appreciate the time with my family and be thankful for what I have. I am thankful for the opportunity to live in America and remember the native tribes who lost their lives. I encourage my children to think of Thanksgiving as a time to help others and be peaceful unlike the settlers who robbed, raped, murdered, and pillaged. I can only hope the natives who were enslaved, murdered, etc. would be proud to see that their story lives on and that some people out there are giving peace in their memory. Many parents in my culture give their children the imagination of Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, etc. until they are old enough to know that it is made up. Why are parents also not telling their children the truth about Thanksgiving. Food for thought and thank you for the history lesson.
