Transcript of First Thanksgiving
Wampanoag were less modest than pilgrims. Men wore only a loincloth along with a small pouch for food or supplies and went barefoot or wore deerskin moccasins. On more formal occasions, like a visit to the Pilgrims, they would wear more decorative clothing: deerskin leggings, jewelry, body paint, hand-embroidered pouches, and a tribal headdress, which took months to make by hand.Men and women wore jewelry crafted from stone, bone, clam shells, and copper beads found locally. Clothing was hand-painted with slivers of wood similar to toothpicks.
Clothes Pilgrims ate duck, seafood, cornbread, curds, and pudding. They ate three meals a day with the midday meal being the biggest. They ate with their hands because they had no spoons, knives, or forks. The cloths draped over their shoulders were for wiping fingers.
During winter, Wampanoag ate rabbit, squirrel, turkey and deer. Woman would turn the days hunt into a meat stew. Wampanoag were expert fishermen. They baited hooks with dried clam necks and fished out of their canoes. Food
Wampanoag boys learned to hunt with a bow. They had no schools, but certain boys were chosen to be warrior counselors. Only the strongest were chosen after a series of physical challenges. A Wampanoag boy had to learn to make his own arrows.
There were no schools for the Pilgrims but some were taught by their parents. School It was a two day walk from the Wampanoag village. They had to build their own shelter because the pilgrims barely had managed to build houses for themselves. Between meals the pilgrims and the Wampanoag played games. The Wampanoag may have taught the Pilgrims the Pin Game where a player tries to toss a small ring into a pin. In addition there were target shooting, singing, and dancing among both the Wampanoag and the Pilgrims. Ten months later, the pilgrims felt very thankful. Ducks were probably the main course because waterfowl was plentiful in the bay area. The Pilgrims would not have survived without the help of the native Wampanoag people so they were invited to join the pilgrims feast. As a gift they brought deer to the feast. There is only one written account of the first Thanksgiving, and turkey is not mentioned. Cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes weren’t even invented yet. Along with duck and deer, the diners likely enjoyed seafood, cabbage, onions, corn, and squash. In 1621 the feast was not one big sit down meal. Meals were eaten throughout the colony for almost a week. Sometimes the Wampanoag and the Pilgrims ate together, other times they ate separately. 9:45 14:53 The First Thanksgiving Resources
