"Cloaking Morality within Genocide: Reciprocity by Confounding Thanks/Giving"
George E. (Tink) Tinker (Osage Nation), Professor of American Indian Cultures and Religious Traditions at Iliff School of Theology ( ) joins us today to discuss the settler society's collective amnesia, reinforcing the master, colonial narrative inclusive of the Thanksgiving Holiday, how governments, institutions, and agencies across America are using the month of "November", established as "Native American Heritage Month" ("Indian in the Cupboard Syndrome"), as a means to coopt, placate and pacify indigenous peoples from engaging in critical forms of decolonization, self-determination and sovereignty; and why "Native American Heritage Month" is based off the Thanksgiving Holiday and not any important Indigenous persons contribution to Indigenous peoples and their respective First Nations.
