10:30 – 11:30 KUUF Sanctuary, Rev. Jessica Star Rockers: The land on which our fellowship sits is indigenous land. It is the ancestral land of the Duwamish, Suquamish, and Skokomish tribes of the Coast Salish people, a people who still live here. As we prepare for the week of Thanksgiving, let us take a moment to “decolonize” the holiday and honor the legacy of the indigenous community that has for centuries celebrated the harvest with abundant generosity and gratitude. Together let us challenge the myth of the first Thanksgiving and instead, imagine a new way of celebrating this tradition with honesty and respect for our larger beloved community.
