When you look past the deep-rooted traditions -- the turkey, the travel and the massive corporate marketing spends -- Thanksgiving gets a little rough. This episode shares the story of the Wampanoag Tribe’s protest of Thanksgiving in 1970 in Plymouth, MA and how it led to the first National Day of Mourning. This episode, ‘Sabotaging Thanksgiving’ originally aired on Not Past It, hosted by Simone Polanen.
