Many of us have celebrated Thanksgiving by dressing as Pilgrims and Indians and sharing a potluck at school.

But holidays like Thanksgiving and Columbus Day can be fraught for many Native Americans. And celebrations can perpetuate historical inaccuracies and stereotypes.

NPR is interested in hearing from teachers in the United States about how they teach Thanksgiving in 2019.

Has the way you’ve talked about the holiday changed over the years? If so, how?

Please fill out this survey to tell us about your experience and how best to get in touch with you. A reporter or producer may contact you for a story.
