The context in the film is critical of the Thanksgiving narrative, but written and performed from Settler perspectives. This scene has been reclaimed and used as a longstanding online meme in anti-colonial critiques of Thanksgiving celebrations in North America. It has also been repurposed by First Nation artists, like the Halluci Nation (formerly a Tribe Called Red) in their song Burn Your Village to the Ground. To read more from the perspectives of Indigenous writers on the film’s scene, its cultural legacy and its limitations as representation visit here and here.
