The First Thanksgiving

The Pilgrims and PlymouthWhen the Pilgrims setted from the Mayflower on Plymouth Plantation, they met some of their Indian friends who helped them plant crops and learn how to live on the new land. After the Pilgrim's first crops of the harvest, they decided to have a large feast with the Indians in order to show their gratitude and their thankfulness to the Lord for His provision. http://www.plimoth.org/learn/just-kids

Plymouth Living Quarters

Wampanoag Indians

The Pilgrims arrived in the New World during the winter, making it very difficult for them to find food and build shelter. Aready weakened by their two-month voyage, most of the passengers failed to survive the first few months in their new home. Fortunately, native people called Wampanoag, or "eastern peoples," already lived in the Massachusetts Bay area. They shared their knowledge of local crops and navigation with the "coat-men," as they called the English, and helped the colonists survive.

The English colonists we call Pilgrims celebrated days of thanksgiving as part of their religion. But these were days of prayer, not days of feasting.Our national holiday really stems from the feast held in the autumn of 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag to celebrate the colony's first successful harvest.
