VOAVideo: Museum Serves Native American-Inspired Feast
The modern American Thanksgiving is inspired by a harvest feast held in 1621 in Massachusetts when the English colonists and about 90 members of the Wampanoag tribe reportedly celebrated for three days.
If Americans today are looking for inspiration for their holiday meal, they might want to visit the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington and see what's on the menu at its cafeteria.
