Thanksgiving, Wampanoag

Marabou looks up at type that reads: Thanksgiving Fact: “Some people believe that the Pilgrims celebrated the “first” Thanksgiving with the Wampanoag. However, the Wampanoag have a tradition and way of giving thanks that began much, much earlier than the harvest festival the Pilgrims and Wampanoag shared in the 1620s. It has been documented, in fact, that our Tribe has lived on the lands we still live on (called Aquinnah on the island of Martha’s Vineyard) for at least twelve thousand years!” from The Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head’s website
