I am very thankful: I'm thankful for this life. For being free. Being able to live with my clan and that my father is a chief. I'm thankful that we learned how to grow crops crops as another source of food then just hunting. That we have a celebration of the new corn. Called The Green Corn Ceremony. That the village has a feast and shares what everyone is thankful for. I'm thankful that we have a permanent settlement, so the elder don't have to walk everywhere. Then we don't have to move when we find good places to build a village.
