A native american tribe thats happy about Thanksgiving is as sad as an indian in a cowboy hat.

And your usage of beguiling has gotten the line of a song from Meet Me In St. Louis (and performed by Judy Garland) stuck in my head. "Over the Banister leans a face, tenderly sweet and beguiling"

I need to watch that movie again, it's been a while.

They're probably thanking you for all the money you lost at their casino, and all those blankets you bought, and the postcards, and the smoked whale hors d'oeuvres, and ....

Actually, my brother Dave's tribe used to celebrate and enjoy Thanksgiving.

Beware people bringing you blankets though, it might be a return gift ...

I think they're being witty and sarcastic. At least I hope they are. I mean, who sends Thanksgiving cards specifically? Most people send generic holiday cards or Christmas cards. They must be being ironic.

Subtext: it's fall. You are likely to be a homsexual who will not be going home to visit family over T-giving. So why not come to Angel of the Winds and play slot machines.

This will be difficult for you to fully process, I know, not having encountered it very often in the past, but the Stillaguamish are nice people.

@& - Some of us homos do spend Thanksgiving with our families. Not that we all enjoy it, of course. All my family talks about this time of year are deer hunting and the Packers. I can't even begin to try to participate in the conversation, so I sit quietly in the corner.

I think I just talked myself out of the family gathering this year. Thank you #7.

They are just trying to sway you into not posting a story about the PC bull$hit they introduced into the schools that Thanksgiving should also be about Indians and their deep sadness during this "festive" holiday.

Just another example of a special interest group trying to change long standing traditions to prop up their "special standing"

i wish the inside said "thanks for stealing our land, pilgrim."

I bet the envelope has smallpox.

Better a Thanksgiving card than "Columbus Day" I would think.

DALE: Hey, John Redcorn. Do your people celebrate Thanksgiving?

this only confirms my long-held suspicions that you are a casino.

You can't participate in a conversation about Packers? I thought that's what homos always talked about.

@2 alot of the old cowboys WERE indians. when i was little cowboys and indians were the same side! also, this holiday has alot more history and baggage for east coast tribes; for western tribes alot of times we've seperated out the squanto thing from the holiday and just eat and get together. and @4 don't knock whale till you've tried it, hmmm muktuk, also the stillaguamish haven't whaled that was the makah.
