The Oneida Indian Nation Will Be Featured In The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade For It’s Fifth Straight Year
Millions of Americans wake up Thanksgiving morning and turn on the TV to watch giant floats and marching bands journey through the streets of New York City. It's all part of The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. For the fifth straight year, The Oneida Indian Nation will be featured in the parade. Look out for the “True Spirit of Thanksgiving” float.
The float itself features a 30-foot-tall White Pine "Tree of Peace," which sprouts from the back of "Turtle Island," which symbolizes Mother Earth. This year’s float will include a choir led by Grammy-winning Native American artist Thirza Defoe.
The 86th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will air from nine till noon Thanksgiving morning on NBC. Look for the nation’s float around 10:30a.m.
