Getty Images Samoset, one of the first Native Americans to meet the Pilgrims, famously introduced them to Squanto. Ever heard the tale about the first Thanksgiving in ? As the story goes, the English Pilgrims meet a “friendly” Native American named Squanto in Plymouth, Massachusetts. The book "Squanto's Journey" by Joseph Bruchac was a very good book. This book was about a native american named Squanto who was a member of an indian tribe. The Land of the Indian tribe was beginning to be covered with white men. The white men stole Squanto. Squanto was able to get free and come back to his land with the help of a white man 4/5. On his next visit Samoset brought Squanto, because Squanto had been to England and spoke much better English. Lynn Ceci, in Science magazine of 4 April , demonstrates that the agricultural technique of burying a fish with maize to make it grow better was one that Squanto himself had most likely learned from other Englishmen (source).
According to the book The Invented Indian, many historians don’t believe Squanto was among those five Native-Americans because Maine was not Squanto’s home and because Rosier identified the names of these Native-Americans he captured: Tahanedo, Amoret, Skicowaros, Maneddo, Saffacomoit, and the name Squanto was not among them. In Act II Samoset carries off the maiden Juliana and Winslow for a sacrifice, but the next scene presents "A dreadful Combat with Clubs and Shileds, between Samoset and Squanto".

Several days later Samoset returned to the Pilgrim outpost with Squanto, a local Massachusetts Indian, who could handle the English language much better than either Samoset or Massassoit. In fact, Squanto had already visited Europe, courtesy of a few slave traders, who had captured the local Indian, while sailing along the coast of North America. On Ma , Samoset came back with Squanto, the last remaining Patuxet tribesman, who spoke much better English than he. Squanto arranged a meeting with Massasoit. In , English Captain Christopher Levett entertained Samoset and other Native American leaders in the harbor of present-day Portland, Maine. SQUANTO AND SAMOSET AMERICAN HEROS The following is transcribed from the book “THE LIGHT AND THE GLORY” by Peter Marshall and David Manuel. This part started around the sixth, seventh or eighth page of Chapter Six. The Indians who lived near Plymouth are truly hero’s of America. Samoset (also Somerset, c. –) was an Abenaki sagamore and the first American Indian to make contact with the Pilgrims of Plymouth startled the colonists on Ma by walking into Plymouth Colony and greeting them in English, which he had begun to learn from fishermen frequenting the waters of greeted them then asked if they had beer.
