Pilgrims or Indians?

One of the things I enjoy is decorating my home for each holiday. Thanksgiving is no exception.

However, the question came to my mind as I was decorating this year .....

Do you prefer "Pilgrims" ?

Or "Indians" in your Thanksgiving decoration?
Me, you ask? I prefer Indians, because I used to be one. I used to be a Pocatello High School Indian. I still hold that Indian Pride within my heart. Therefore, I am partial to finding Indians to adorn my home.
A couple of years ago while shopping with my mother, we ran across this beautiful Indian doll. Of course I fell in love with it, but didn't purchase it. I loved it and it was hard to walk away.

Imagine my surprise for Christmas that year when I opened a present and there was that beautiful Indian maiden. I love her. She sits on my Fireplace hearth during the Thanksgiving season. She is my favorite Thanksgiving decoration. She is 30 inches high - very large and makes quite a statement.
In the window above my Kitchen sink are these beauties.
Or course you will see quite a few Turkeys ......
And Pilgrims around my house this time of year.

But Indians have a special place in my heart! What do you prefer?

I never even thought about it before. I hardly have any Thanksgiving decorations and they're all pumpkins, corn or leaves. I'll have to think about this since I wanted to get some more decorations. All of yours are so cute.
