In the winter of 1620 a group of pilgrims arrived to Plymouth Rock aboard the Mayflower. The pilgrims were in a new country, on new land; everything was unfamiliar. It was freezing, they didn’t have food, they didn’t have shelter, they had no idea how to survive. The local Native American tribe helped the pilgrims by teaching them all the skills they needed to survive, especially how to grow food. Half of the pilgrims died in the first winter. When the fall harvest came they had a huge celebration to celebrate that the pilgrims had been able to produce a successful harvest: this illustrate that they had become (or could become) self-sufficient and survive in the new world. This celebration lasted three days and during the celebration, the pilgrims and Native Americans feasted all together.
