Keepunumuk: Weeâchumun's Thanksgiving Story
This Native story gives voice to the Earth, animals and plants. It explains how the First People helped the Newcomers survive the winter by showing them how to farm. The book ends with a map of Massachusetts and Wampanoag tribes. Favorite quotes, "But the newcomers could not hear the seeds. Their ears did not know the voices of the land," and "They took Weeâchumun's seeds, but they don't know how to help them grow."
