What Native American Tribe Celebrated The First Thanksgiving With The Pilgrims?

President of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Cedric Cromwell stated that the first Thanksgiving was not the ‘Normal Rockwell’ depiction of native people sitting merrily on the ground and being fed pies as depicted in popular culture. He said that the feast was a diplomatic endeavor to bring about peace after the Wampanoag noticed Pilgrims practicing with muskets in a field nearby.

A harvest festival at Plymouth, Massachusetts, commemorates the gathering of the newly arriving Pilgrims and the indigenous Wampanoag people in November 1621, which is often recognized as the ″first Thanksgiving″ in America. But what exactly was on the menu during the fabled feast, and which of today’s time-honored favorites were absent from the menu?
