Olympia, Wa Fido Net 1: I have been a public schools teacher for twelve years, and I am also a historian and have written several books on American and Native American history.
Because my Indian ancestors were on both sides of the struggle between the Puritans and the New England Indians and I am well versed in my cultural heritage and history both as an Anishnabeg Algokin and Hodenosione Iroquoisit was felt that I could bring a unique insight to the project.
For an Indian, who is also a school teacher, Thanksgiving was never an easy holiday for me to deal with in class. I sometimes have felt like I learned too much about "the Pilgrims and the Indians.
The problem is that part of what you and I learned in our own childhood about the "Pilgrims" and "Squanto" and the "First Thanksgiving" is a mixture of both history and myth. But the THEME of Thanksgiving has truth and integrity far above and beyond what we and our forebearers have made of it.
Thanksgiving is a bigger concept than just the story of the founding of the Plymouth Plantation. So what do we teach to our children? We usually pass on unquestioned what we all received in our own childhood classrooms. I have come to know both the truths and the myths about our "First Thanksgiving," and I feel we need to try to reach beyond the myths to some degree of historic truth.
This text is an attempt to do this. At this point you are probably asking, "What is the big deal about Thanksgiving and the Pilgrims? I propose that there may be a good deal that many of us do not know about our Thanksgiving holiday and also about the "First Thanksgiving" story.
I also propose that what most of us have learned about the Pilgrims and the Indians who were at the first Thanksgiving at Plymouth Plantation is only part of the truth. When you build a lesson on only half of the information, then you are not teaching the whole truth. That is why I used the word myth.
So where do you start to find out more about the holiday and our modern stories about how it began? I also recommend looking up any good text on British history. Check out the British Civil War ofOliver Cromwell, and the Puritan uprising of which ended parliamentary government in England until The history of the Puritan experience in New England really should not be separated from the history of the Puritan experience in England.Students will differentiate between different types of foods to determine which of the five food groups they belong in.
