A historical analysis, from Peace Talks Radio, of events and people connected to that we refer to as the “First Thanksgiving.”
American Indian scholars Darius Coombs and Bob Charlesbois fill in the details about Massasoit, who was the the leader of the native Wampanoag Confederacy when English settlers landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620.
They describe Massasoit’s attempt to make peace for his people with the Pilgrims. He and his people kept the Pilgrims from starving in the early years of their settlement.
Also, Native American film director Chris Eyre talks about his portrayal of Massasoit for the 2009 PBS television series “We Shall Remain”.
