    • Sacajawea and Lewis and Clark

Pilgrims and wampanoags
Pilgrims and Wampanoags

  • The pilgrims landed at Plymouth Harbor, in modern day Massachusetts, in December. By March, almost half of the pilgrims died.

  • A Native American named Samoset appeared at Plymouth and was able to communicate in English to the pilgrims.

  • He introduced the pilgrims to the leader of the Wampanoag Tribe and one of the tribesman, Squanto taught the pilgrims how to farm, and where the great places were to hunt and fish.


The first thanksgiving
The First Thanksgiving

  • Thanks to the Wampanoag Natives, the Pilgrims had a great harvest in 1621.

  • They shared their great harvest with the Natives in a huge festival, thought to be the first Thanksgiving.

  • Meal included cornbread, wild game birds (turkey), greens, venison, and shellfish.


Sacajawea and lewis and clark
Sacajawea and Lewis and Clark

  • Lewis and Clark encountered many Native tribes on their expedition to the Pacific Ocean

  • They meet Sacajawea, a Shoshone Native woman, who was married to a French fur trader, who accompanied them on their journey.

  • Sacajawea acted as an interpreter and bargainer for Lewis and Clark with the Native tribes in the area.


Language barriers
Language Barriers

  • For Lewis and Clark to communicate with different Native tribes, there had be many translations.

    • Lewis and Clark only spoke English

    • Rene Jessaume, a fur trader on the expedition with them, spoke French and English

    • Toussaint Charbonneau, Sacajawea’s husband, spoke French and Shoshone

    • Sacajawea spoke Shoshone and Hidatsa.

  • So to communicate with a native tribe, Lewis and Clark spoke English to Jessaume, who spoke French to Charbonneau, who spoke Shoshone to Sacajawea, who would talk to the Native Tribes.
