for Americans, whatever that means, Native and not: How do we put the giving back in Thanksgiving?

What is a good way for non-natives to honor Native Americans without adding insult to injury? Should we take the day as a reminder that systems of inequality are still robbing many Natives of their health and well being, depending on their situation? Should we also give money to Native organizations working to improve that problem (or in my case ask well off family members to do so)? I do not find "leave the country I was raised in to live in one I wasn't" to be a fair answer though I would be interested to hear discussion about that too.

(on a totally different subject for those of you who have opted into the "rants" filter I will put something up later that may be interesting ideas on why some of us have different perspectives.)
