WOLF CREEK HERITAGE MUSEUM NOTES
by Virginia Scott
This is our last week for the year 2020. We will be organizing and cleaning our desks so we can start the new year. Hopefully we will have new shelving by then. We also hope the coronavirus has been eliminated by then. We hope everyone is being careful and observing the necessary precautions when in public and at home.
We have had visitors to our geocaches. These are sites with coordinates so people can locate them and take a small token and leave us a note or they get credit and they send an email to us letting us know they have found our caches. It is a way to get people to come through Lipscomb county and discover our beautiful location. The entry of one stated, "Wind howling today." To us it was a typical day.
In 1988, a Thanksgiving ceremony of a different kind took place at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. More than four thousand people gathered on Thanksgiving night. Among them were native Americans representing tribes from all over the country and descendants of people whose ancestors had migrated to the New World.
The ceremony was a public acknowledgement of the Indians' role in the first Thanksgiving 350 years ago. Until recently most school children had believed that the Pilgrims cooked the entire feast, and offered it to the Indians, In fact the feast was planned to thank the Indians for teaching them how to cook those foodsl Without the Indians, the first settlers would not have survived.

Wishing everyone safe and happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful healthy New Year. See you in 2021.
