This toolkit includes a list of tools and resources to help parents approach their children’s schools to advocate for a more inclusive approach to discussing Thanksgiving. These resources can also be used by teachers wanting to alter their approach to teaching about Native peoples and Thanksgiving. Contents include sample letters to send to a child's school regarding problematic Thanksgiving classroom activities, children's books about Native peoples, cultures, and traditions, and resources for educators and families to teach about Thanksgiving and Native peoples in a socially responsible way.
