Thangs Taken

The Free Land Project presented the 4th annual Thangs Taken: Rethinking Thanksgiving on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. It was an eye opening event that asked us to explore and reevaluate our ideas of Thanksgiving and the plight of the often overlooked and underrepresented Native Americans.

The night brought together both Native and non-Native artists to speak, deliver spoken word and hip hop, and perform live music and song. There was a lot of entertainment and a lot of information flowing that night about social and environmental justice. The key point to take away though was that there are a lot of ways that we all can get involved to make our community a better place and one that we can be truly thankful for.

The night concluded with a performance that brought the house to it’s feet by the hip hop group BRWN BFLO .
