Every summer we would gather the fruit of the yucca, grind and pulverize it and mold it into cakes; then the tribe would be assembled to feast, to sing, and to give praises to Usen. Prayers of Thanksgiving were said by all. When the dance began the leaders bore these cakes and added words of praise occasionally to the usual sounds of the music.

As families gather throughout the United States for Thanksgiving dinner, I wanted to quote the words of Geronimo. The above quote can be founding Geronimo, His Own Story: The Autobiography of a Great Patriot Warrior As Told to S.M. Barrett. That said, lets all give thanks to the Great Creator.
