Who were the Wampanoag Indians ?
The Wampanoag which means “easterners” were a horticultural people who supplemented their agriculture with hunting and fishing because they were hunter-gathers. The tribe lived in what is known a Massachusetts and Rhode Inland in the early part of the 17th century.
During the 19th century
In spring of 1621 the native Americans and pilgrims met. They joined together to gather food for what the pilgrims wanted to celebrated as giving thanks to their God. The Wampanoag Indians taught the pilgrims how to grow corn and hunt for fish and soon they all would have a harvest festival that lasted three days. It provided enough food for 53 pilgrims and 90 Native Americans.
While large birds were boiled.
Pilgrims stuffed their birds with chunks of
onions, herbs and maybe even nuts.

On 3 October 1789 George Washington signed a proclamation that November 26 would be “A day of public thanksgiving and prayer.” There had been many more Thanksgiving observances in America before Washington but this was particularly important because it was the first holiday declared by the new national government of the United States of America.
