[NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING
Since 1970, Native Americans have gathered at noon on Cole’s Hill in Plymouth to commemorate a National Day of Mourning on the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. Many Native Americans do not celebrate the arrival of the Pilgrims and other European settlers. To them, Thanksgiving Day is a reminded of the genocide of millions of their people, the theft of their lands, and the relentless assault on their culture. Participants in National Day of Mourning honor Native ancestors and the struggles of Native peoples to survive today. It is a day of remembrance and spiritual connection as well as a protest of the racism and oppression with Native Americans continue to experience.
Erected by the town of Plymouth on behalf of the United American Indians of New England.]

50 Days of Doctor Who 50th - Day 30
November 02: If you could write an episode, what would it be about?
I don’t know… something like: the Doctor and his companion turn up on a planet where music is the only form of communication. Silly musical numbers ensue.
I’m actually working on that one. It is simply brilliant way to mesh a native american encounter with the Doctor.
