Which Native American tribe was involved in the first Thanksgiving?
The origin of the Thanksgiving holiday dates back to a harvest feast held in 1621 between the Wampanoag, a Native tribe who occupied the land long before, and the newly settled English colonists in America. Although the two groups formed an alliance for a time, the years that followed led to the mass killing of the Native American people, the seizing of their land, and the enslavement of their people. For the Wampanoags and many other American Indians, the fourth Thursday in November is considered a day of mourning, not a day of giving thanks.
The correct answer is Wampanoag.
