Below is the link to a very detailed explanation of the pilgrim story of the first Thanksgiving. it’s not true. The Wampanoags were not initially invited to the first feast, but showed up anyway. While the encounters half the time led to slavery and half the other time led to violence against the women, we have a serious problem with the story of the pilgrims. They indeed weren’t actually pilgrims, they were freaked out refugees trying to settle a colony because they didn’t want their kids being Dutch. Oh well, here’s the link.
