I recommend Philip Deloria’s article, “The Invention of Thanksgiving,” in the November 25, 2019, of The New Yorker.

He discusses David Silverman’s new book, “This Land Is Their Land: The Wampanoag Indians, Plymouth Colony and the Troubled History of Thanksgiving.” I found it to be interesting and enlightening.
