Thanksgiving Make Up / Wake Up

A friend of mine posted this video on her Facebook today. It’s funny and interesting, but I wondered if it was being serious about white women posting “native inspired” make up tutorials.

It’s totally a thing!

Of course, white people have been appropriating other cultures for ages, so I suppose I shouldn’t have been surprised. 

Anyway, I shared this on FB, but I found it to be a helpful resource. If you’re looking for ideas about talking about Thanksgiving with kids—especially if you want to offer a narrative more accurate than most of us learned in school—these books could be a great place to start.

We have the book Thunder Boy, Jr. and my kids love it. Now I need to go put in some library requests...
