I cringe every year at depictions of the first Thanksgiving, with Pilgrims and “the Indians” harmoniously sitting down to break bread together.
It’s a nice thought, it really is, but it has little to do with truth.
In 1621, a small group of Pilgrims were celebrating a successful harvest, but the fact that 90 warriors were on hand was not a result of invitation.
The Wampanoag tribe that is often generically referred to as “the Indians” in the Thanksgiving story has much more interesting — and believable — version.
