He taught them how to make shelter, use fish for fertilizer, and pointed out many plants to harvest. The pilgrims used these strategies and did way better than they were before. To celebrate, the pilgrims and the indians threw a celebratory feast to thank everyone for the good fortune. They called it 'Thanksgiving'

Thanksgiving started in 1620, when the pilgrims came from England to follow their own religions. When the pilgrims landed in America, they were in Wampanoag territorry. The pilgrims had a rough time and many of them died in the first winter. The seeds they brought would not grow on American soil and many didn't know how to fish. An english speaking indian named Squanto taught them how to survive.

One day, the tribe leader Massasoy visited the pilgrims with 90 other men. The pilgrims invited them to have a feast, but weren't prepaired for 90 men, so Massasoy ordered them to go hunt for more food.
