Jacqueline Keeler is a Diné/Ihanktonwan Dakota writer living in Portland, Oregon and founder of Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry the creators of #NotYourMascot. She has contributed to many publications including The Nation and Yes! Magazine and interviewed on MSNBC and Democracy Now!. Her book “The Edge of Morning: Native Voices Speak for the Bears Ears” is available from Torrey House Press and the forthcoming “Standing Rock to the Bundy Standoff: Occupation, Native Sovereignty, and the Fight for Sacred Landscapes” will be released next year.

In stories told by the Dakota people, an evil person always keeps his or her heart in a secret place separate from the body. The hero must find that secret place and destroy the heart in order to stop the evil. I see, in the "First Thanksgiving" story, a hidden Pilgrim heart. Where is the hero who will destroy that heart of evil?
