It's weird how people are so defensive. Coming in saying "It's not about what happened to those people I just want to celebrate the holiday that's one of many methods used to undersell how horrid First Nations people have been and are continuously treated in America and i fell attacked."
Like yeah people are going to judge because that's an incredibly selfish mentality. Hell if you don't want to talk about the negative things, what about mentioning to your family some of the amazing people from those groups as part of your tradition? Or as was mentioned earlier incorporate giving to an organization that does work on behalf of them? Both of these things would take you maybe 15 minutes or less. Unless you and your family had a really good discussion which would be awesome.
