Native American Sunrise Ceremony 
Native American Sunrise Ceremony
TheNative American Sunrise Ceremony is held every year on Alcatraz Island. This Native American Sunrise Ceremony is an occasion to honor andgive thanks to the Native American people. The unique thanksgiving of 1621 was intended to offer gratitude for the crop. This crop was possiblebecause of the assistance of the native people of America provided to thePilgrims.
