Erin: Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, which has long been my favourite holiday, seemingly rooted in gratitude and celebration of the harvest. Sadly, the day is not without colonial baggage, but the thanksgiving spirit and traditions that I cherish actually find their roots in the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, predating colonization by quite some time. This meditation will honour the indigenous origins of the day, using the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address to guide us in offering our gratitude to the natural world and the original inhabitants of this land.
