ARDMORE, Okla. -- Students at Charles Evans Elementary School got a glimpse of how pilgrims celebrated Thanksgiving.

November is Native American History Month for the elementary school students, and the kids are learning about the first colonists that settled in North America hundreds of years ago.

Students dressed up in native attire and enjoyed a meal of popcorn, pumpkin bread, and fruit.

"It’s lots of fun. They enjoy learning about history and learn all about why our country began, and stands what it stands for today," first grade teacher Ella Keeton said.

The kids even performed the Lord’s Prayer in sign language.

    Hey Pronative that is the most racist bullcrap I have ever heard. You need to stepup and see who taught you people a way of life.

    Whoever wrote this story didn't do a very good job. What does Native American month have to do with Thanksgiving, and with the pilgrims (illegal aliens). I hope Charles Evans also teaches them what really happened between the Natives and the European Empires and not resort to the fairtale history of this country.
