This year marked the 49th annual Indigenous Peoples’ Sunrise Gathering on Alcatraz Island. The yearly tradition represents Native Americans’ resistance to the celebration of Thanksgiving, a holiday that represents the historical erasure of their cultural genocide. More than 4,500 people gathered from all nations to participate in a spiritual ceremony that supports a personal commitment to retaining their culture.
