To decide the issue, according to Bradford's account, "they got all the Powachs of the country, for three days together in a horrid and devilish manner, to curse and execrate them with their conjurations, which assembly and service they held in a dark and dismal swamp.
He urged Massasoit to become friends with the Plymouth colonists, because his enemies would then be "Constrained to bowe to him". On Friday, March 16, the settlers were conducting military training when Samoset "boldly came alone" into the settlement.
The next day, Samoset returned with five men all bearing deer skins and one cat skin. The settlers entertained them but refused to trade with them because it was the Sabbath, although they encouraged them to return with more furs.
All left but Samoset who lingered until Wednesday, feigning illness. The men brought important news: Massasoit, his brother Quadrquina, and all of their men were close by.
After an hour's discussion, the sachem and his train of 60 men appeared on Strawberry Hill. Both the colonists and Massasoit's men were unwilling to make the first move, but Tisquantum shuttled between the groups and effected the simple protocol which permitted Edward Winslow to approach the sachem.
Winslow, with Tisquantum as translator, proclaimed the loving and peaceful intentions of King James and the desire of their governor to trade and make peace with him.
Governor Carver then came "with Drumme and Trumpet after him" to meet Massasoit. The parties ate together, then negotiated a treaty of peace and mutual defense between the Plymouth settlers and the Pokanoket people.
Massasoit and his men left the day after the treaty, but Samoset and Tisquantum remained. Bradford considered him "a special instrument sent of God for their good beyond their expectation".
The day after Massasoit left Plymouth, Tisquantum spent the day at Eel River treading eels out of the mud with his feet. The bucketful of eels he brought back were "fat and sweet".
But Bradford makes special mention of Tisquantum's instruction concerning local horticulture. He had arrived at the time of planting for that year's crops, and Bradford said that "Squanto stood them in great stead, showing them both the manner how to set it, and after how to dress and tend it.
He told them, except they got fish and set with it [corn seed] in these old grounds it would come to nothing. And he showed them that in the middle of April they should have store enough [of fish] come up the brook by which they began to build, and taught them how to take it, and where to get other provisions necessary for them.
All of which they found true by trial and experience. Edward Winslow made the same point about the value of Indian cultivation methods in a letter to England at the end of the year:.
We set the last Spring some twentie Acres of Indian Corne, and sowed some six Acres of Barly and Pease; and according to the manner of the Indians , we manured our ground with Herings or rather Shadds, which we have in great abundance, and take with great ease at our doores.
The method shown by Tisquantum became the regular practice of the settlers. Bradford reported that there was not "any amongst them that ever saw a beaver skin till they came here and were informed by Squanto".
Thomas Morton stated that Massasoit was freed as a result of the peace treaty and "suffered [Tisquantum] to live with the English",  and Tisquantum remained loyal to the colonists.
One commentator has suggested that the loneliness occasioned by the wholesale extinction of his people was the motive for his attachment to the Plymouth settlers.
Plymouth Colony decided in June that a mission to Massasoit in Pokatoket would enhance their security and reduce visits by Indians who drained their food resources.
Winslow wrote that they wanted to ensure that the peace treaty was still valued by the Pokanoket and to reconnoiter the surrounding country and the strength of the various tribes.
They also hoped to show their willingness to repay the grain that they took on Cape Cod the previous winter, in the words of Winslow to "make satisfaction for some conceived injuries to be done on our parts".
They set off on July 2 [k] carrying a "Horse-mans coat" as a gift for Massasoit made of red cotton and trimmed "with a slight lace".
They also took a copper chain and a message expressing their desire to continue and strengthen the peace between the two peoples and explaining the purpose of the chain.
The colony was uncertain of their first harvest, and they requested that Massasoit restrain his people from visiting Plymouth as frequently as they had—though they wished always to entertain any guest of Massasoit.
So if he gave anyone the chain, they would know that the visitor was sent by him and they would always receive him. The message also attempted to explain the settlers' conduct on Cape Cod when they took some corn, and they requested that he send his men to the Nauset to express the settlers' wish to make restitution.
They departed at 9 a. When they arrived at Pokanoket, Massasoit had to be sent for, and Winslow and Hopkins gave him a salute with their muskets when he arrived, at Tisquantum's suggestion.
Massasoit was grateful for the coat and assured them on all points that they made. He assured them that his 30 tributary villages would remain in peace and would bring furs to Plymouth.
The colonists stayed for two days,  then sent Tisquantum off to the various villages to seek trading partners for the English while they returned to Plymouth.
Winslow writes that young John Billington had wandered off and had not returned for five days. Bradford sent word to Massasoit, who made inquiry and found that the child had wandered into a Manumett village, who turned him over to the Nausets.
They sailed to Cummaquid by evening and spent the night anchored in the bay. In the morning, the two Indians on board were sent to speak to two Indians who were lobstering.
They were told that the boy was at Nauset, and the Cape Cod Indians invited all the men to take food with them. The Plymouth colonists waited until the tide allowed the boat to reach the shore, and then they were escorted to sachem Iyanough who was in his mids and "very personable, gentle, courteous, and fayre conditioned, indeed not like a Savage", in Winslow's words.
The colonists were lavishly entertained, and Iyanough even agreed to accompany them to the Nausets. Winslow assured her that they would never treat Indians that way and "gave her some small trifles, which somewhat appeased her".
The colonists remained in their shallop and Nauset men came "very thick" to entreat them to come ashore, but Winslow's party was afraid because this was the very spot of the First Encounter.
One of the Indians whose corn they had taken the previous winter came out to meet them, and they promised to reimburse him.
The colonists gave Aspinet a knife and one to the man who carried the boy to the boat. By this, Winslow considered that "they made peace with us.
The Nausets departed, but the colonists learned probably from Tisquantum that the Narragansetts had attacked the Pokanokets and taken Massasoit.
This caused great alarm because their own settlement was not well guarded given that so many were on this mission. The men tried to set off immediately, but they had no fresh water.
After stopping again at Iyanough's village, they set off for Plymouth. The men returned to Plymouth after rescuing the Billington boy, and it was confirmed to them that Massasoit had been ousted or taken by the Narragansetts.
Corbitant was reportedly also railing against the peace initiatives that the Plymouth settlers had just had with the Cummaquid and the Nauset.
Tisquantum was an object of Corbitant's ire because of his role in mediating peace with the Cape Cod Indians, but also because he was the principal means by which the settlers could communicate with the Indians.
Tokamahamon, however, went looking for Massasoit. Corbitant discovered Tisquantum and Hobomok at Nemasket and captured them.
He held Tisquantum with a knife to his breast, but Hobomok broke free and ran to Plymouth to alert them, thinking that Tisquantum had died.
Governor Bradford organized an armed task force of about a dozen men under the command of Miles Standish,   and they set off before daybreak on August 14  under the guidance of Hobomok.
The plan was to march the 14 miles to Nemasket, rest, and then take the village unawares in the night. The surprise was total, and the villagers were terrified.
The colonists could not make the Indians understand that they were only looking for Corbitant, and there were "three sore wounded" trying to escape the house.
The colonists searched the dwelling, and Hobomok got on top of it and called for Tisquantum and Tisquantum, both of whom came. The settlers commandeered the house for the night.
The next day, they explained to the village that they were interested only in Corbitant and those supporting him. They warned that they would exact retribution if Corbitant continued threatening them, or if Massasoit did not return from the Narragansetts, or if anyone attempted harm to any of Massasoit's subjects, including Tisquantum and Hobomok.
They then marched back to Plymouth with Nemasket villagers helping bear their equipment. Bradford wrote that this action resulted in a firmer peace, and that "divers sachems" congratulated the settlers and more came to terms with them.
Even Corbitant made his peace through Massasoit. The Plymouth colonists resolved to meet with the Massachusetts Indians who had frequently threatened them.
But they misjudged the distance and were forced to anchor off shore and stay in the shallop over the next night.
Tisquantum was sent to make contact, and they discovered that the sachem presided over a considerably reduced band of followers.
His name was Obbatinewat, and he was a tributary of Massasoit. He explained that his current location within Boston harbor was not a permanent residence since he moved regularly to avoid the Tarentines [n] and the Squa Sachim the widow of Nanepashemet.
He also took them to see the squa sachem across the Massachusetts Bay. On Friday, September 21, the colonists went ashore and marched a house where Nanepashemet was buried.
There were signs of hurried removal, but they found the women together with their corn and later a man who was brought trembling to the settlers.
They assured him that they did not intend harm, and he agreed to trade furs with them. Tisquantum urged the colonists to simply "rifle" the women and take their skins on the ground, that "they are a bad people and oft threatned you,"  but the colonists insisted on treating them fairly.
The women followed the men to the shallop, selling them everything that they had, including the coats off their backs. As the colonists shipped off, they noticed that the many islands in the harbor had been inhabited, some cleared entirely, but all the inhabitants had died.
During the fall of the Plymouth settlers had every reason to be contented with their condition, less than one year after the "starving times". Bradford expressed the sentiment with biblical allusion [o] that they found "the Lord to be with them in all their ways, and to bless their outgoings and incomings …"  Winslow was more prosaic when he reviewed the political situation with respect to surrounding natives in December "Wee have found the Indians very faithfull in their Covenant of Peace with us; very loving and readie to pleasure us …," not only the greatest, Massasoit, "but also all the Princes and peoples round about us" for fifty miles.
Even a sachem from Martha's Vineyard, who they never saw, and also seven others came in to submit to King James "so that there is now great peace amongst the Indians themselves, which was not formerly, neither would have bin but for us …" .
Bradford wrote in his journal that come fall together with their harvest of Indian corn, they had abundant fish and fowl, including many turkeys they took in addition to venison.
He affirmed that the reports of plenty that many report "to their friends in England" were not "feigned but true reports".
Winslow, however, did, and the letter which was included in Mourt's Relation became the basis for the tradition of "the first Thanksgiving". Winslow's description of what was later celebrated as the first Thanksgiving was quite short.
He wrote that after the harvest of Indian corn, their planting of peas were not worth gathering and their barley harvest of barley was "indifferent" , Bradford sent out four men fowling "so we might after a more special manner rejoice together, after we had gathered the fruit of our labours …"  The time was one of recreation, including the shooting of arms, and many Natives joined them, including Massasoit and 90 of his men, [q] who stayed three days.
They killed five deer which they presented to Bradford, Standish and others in Plymouth. Winslow concluded his description by telling his readers that "we are so farre from want, that we often wish you partakers of our plentie.
The various treaties created a system where the English settlers filled the vacuum created by the epidemic. The villages and tribal networks surrounding Plymouth now saw themselves as tributaries to the English and as they were assured King James.
The settlers also viewed the treaties as committing the Natives to a form of vassalage. Nathaniel Morton, Bradford's nephew, interpreted the original treaty with Massasoit, for example, as "at the same time" not within the written treaty terms acknowledging himeself "content to become the Subject of our Sovereign Lord the King aforesaid, His Heirs and Successors, and gave unto them all the Lands adjacent, to them and their Heirs for ever".
In December the Fortune which had brought 35 more settlers had departed for England. Winslow wrote that the messenger appeared relieved and left a bundle of arrows wrapped in a rattlesnake skin.
Rather than let him depart, however, Bradford committed him to the custody of Standish. The captain asked Winslow, who had a "speciall familiaritie" with other Indians, to see if he could get anything out of the messenger.
The messenger would not be specific but said that he believed "they were enemies to us. After his fear subsided, the messenger told him that the messenger who had come from Canonicus last summer to treat for peace, returned and persuaded the sachem on war.
Canonicus was particularly aggrieved by the "meannesse" of the gifts sent him by the English, not only in relation to what he sent to colonists but also in light of his own greatness.
On obtaining this information, Bradford ordered the messenger released. When Tisquantum returned he explained that the meaning of the arrows wrapped in snake skin was enmity; it was a challenge.
After consultation, Bradford stuffed the snake skin with powder and shot and had a Native return it to Canonicus with a defiant message. Winslow wrote that the returned emblem so terrified Canonicus that he refused to touch it, and that it passed from hand to hand until, by a circuitous route, it was returned to Plymouth.
Notwithstanding the colonists' bold response to the Narragansett challenge, the settlers realized their defenselessness to attack.
Most important they decided to enclose the settlement within a pale probably much like what was discovered surrounding Nenepashemet's fort.
They shut the inhabitants within gates that were locked at night, and a night guard was posted. Standish divided the men into four squadrons and drilled them in where to report in the event of alarm.
They also came up with a plan of how to respond to fire alarms so as to have a sufficient armed force to respond to possible Native treachery.
This work had to be done in the winter and at a time too when the settlers were on half rations because of the new and unexpected settlers.
By the beginning of March, the fortification of the settlement had been accomplished. It was now time when the settlers had promised the Massachuset they would come to trade for furs.
They received another alarm however, this time from Hobomok, who was still living with them. Hobomok told of his fear that the Massachuset had joined in a confederacy with the Narraganset and if Standish and his men went there, they would be cut off and at the same time the Narraganset would attack the settlement at Plymouth.
Hobomok also told them that Tisquantum was part of this conspiracy, that he learned this from other Natives he met in the woods and that the settlers would find this out when Tisquantum would urge the settlers into the Native houses "for their better advantage".
Bradford consulted with his advisors, and they concluded that they had to make the mission despite this information. The decision was made partly for strategic reasons.
If the colonists cancelled the promised trip out of fear and instead stayed shut up "in our new-enclosed towne", they might encourage even more aggression.
But the main reason they had to make the trip was that their "Store was almost emptie" and without the corn they could obtain by trading "we could not long subsist …"  The governor therefore deputed Standish and 10 men to make the trip and sent along both Tisquantum and Hobomok, given "the jealousy between them".
Not long after the shallop departed, "an Indian belonging to Squanto's family" came running in.
He betrayed signs of great fear, constantly looking behind him as if someone "were at his heels". He was taken to Bradford to whom he told that many of the Narraganset together with Corbitant "and he thought Massasoit" were about to attack Plymouth.
In this account he said that the combined forces were already at Nemasket and were set on taking advantage of the opportunity supplied by Standish's absence.
Because of calm seas Standish and his men had just reached Gurnet's Nose , heard the alarm and quickly returned. When Hobomok first heard the news he "said flatly that it was false …" Not only was he assured of Massasoit's faithfulness, he knew that his being a pniese meant he would have been consulted by Massasoit before he undertook such a scheme.
To make further sure Hobomok volunteered his wife to return to Pokanoket to assess the situation for herself. At the same time Bradford had the watch maintained all that night, but there were no signs of Natives, hostile or otherwise.
Hobomok's wife found the village of Pokanoket quiet with no signs of war preparations. She then informed Massasoit of the commotion at Plymouth.
The sachem was "much offended at the carriage of Tisquantum" but was grateful for Bradford's trust in him [Massasoit]. He also sent word back that he would send word to the governor, pursuant to the first article of the treaty they had entered, if any hostile actions were preparing.
Winslow writes that "by degrees wee began to discover Tisquantum ," but he does not describe the means or over what period of time this discovery took place.
There apparently was no formal proceeding. The conclusion reached, according to Winslow, was that Tisquantum had been using his proximity and apparent influence over the English settlers "to make himselfe great in the eyes of" local Natives for his own benefit.
Winslow explains that Tisquantum convinced locals that he had the ability to influence the English toward peace or war and that he frequently extorted Natives by claiming that the settlers were about to kill them in order "that thereby hee might get gifts to himself to work their peace …" .
Bradford's account agrees with Winslow's to this point, and he also explains where the information came from: "by the former passages, and other things of like nature",  evidently referring to rumors Hobomok said he heard in the woods.
Winslow goes much further in his charge, however, claiming that Tisquantum intended to sabotage the peace with Massasoit by false claims of Massasoit aggression "hoping whilest things were hot in the heat of bloud, to provoke us to march into his Country against him, whereby he hoped to kindle such a flame as would not easily be quenched, and hoping if that blocke were once removed, there were no other betweene him and honour" which he preferred over life and peace.
What he referred to was their cache of gunpowder. Captain Standish and his men eventually did go to the Massachuset and returned with a "good store of Trade".
On their return, they saw that Massasoit was there and he was displaying his anger against Tisquantum. Bradford did his best to appease him, and he eventually departed.
No long afterward, however, he sent a messenger demanding that Tisquantum is put to death. Bradford responded that although Tisquantum "deserved to die both in respect of him [Massasoit] and us", but said that Tisquantum was too useful to the settlers because otherwise, he had no one to translate.
Not long afterward, the same messenger returned, this time with "divers others", demanding Tisquantum. They argued that Tisquantum being a subject of Massasoit, was subject, pursuant to the first article of the Peace Treaty, to the sachem's demand, in effect, rendition.
They further argued that if Bradford would not produce pursuant to the Treaty, Massasoit had sent many beavers' skins to induce his consent.
Finally, if Bradford still would not release him to them, the messenger had brought Massasoit's own knife by which Bradford himself could cut off Tisquantum's head and hands to be returned with the messenger.
Bradford avoided the question of Massasoit's right under the treaty [u] but refused the beaver pelts saying that "It was not the manner of the English to sell men's lives at a price …" The governor called Tisquantum who had promised not to flee , who denied the charges and ascribed them to Hobomok's desire for his downfall.
He nonetheless offered to abide by Bradford's decision. Bradford was "ready to deliver him into the hands of his Executioners" but at that instance, a boat passed before the town in the harbor.
Fearing that it might be the French, Bradford said he had to first identify the ship before dealing with the demand. The messenger and his companions, however, "mad with rage, and impatient at delay" left "in great heat".
The ship the English saw pass before the town was not French, but rather a shallop from the Sparrow , a shipping vessel sponsored by Thomas Weston and one other of the Plymouth settlement's sponsors, which was plying the eastern fishing grounds.
He asked the Plymouth colony, however, to house and feed these newcomers, provide them with seed stock and ironically salt, until he was able to send the salt pan to them.
He requested that the settlers entertain them in their houses so that they could go out and cut down timber to lade the ship quickly so as not to delay its departure.
Winslow described the dire straits. They now were without bread "the want whereof much abated the strength and the flesh of some, and swelled others".
Had it not been for shellfish which they could catch by hand, they would have perished. Weston urged the settlers to ratify the decision; only then might the London merchants send them further support, although what motivation they would then have he did not explain.
John Huddleston, who was unknown to them but captained a fishing ship that had returned from Virginia to the Maine fishing grounds, advised his "good friends at Plymouth" of the massacre in the Jamestown settlements by the Powhatan in which he said had been killed.
He warned them: "Happy is he whom other men's harms doth make to beware. Sending a return for this kindness, they might also seek fish or other provisions from the fishermen.
Winslow and a crew were selected to make the voyage to Maine, miles away, to a place they had never been.
Even though this was not as much as Winslow hoped, it was enough to keep them going until the harvest.
When Winslow returned, the threat they felt had to be addressed. The general anxiety aroused by Huddleston's letter was heightened by the increasingly hostile taunts they learned of.
Surrounding villagers were "glorying in our weaknesse", and the English heard threats about how "easie it would be ere long to cut us off".
Even Massasoit turned cool towards the English, and could not be counted on to tamp down this rising hostility. So they decided to build a fort on burying hill in town.
And just as they did when building the palisade, the men had to cut down trees, haul them from the forest and up the hill and construct the fortified building, all with inadequate nutrition and at the neglect of dressing their crops.
They might have thought they reached the end of their problems, but in June the settlers saw two more vessels arrive, carrying 60 additional mouths to feed.
These were the passengers that Weston had written would be unloaded from the vessel going on to Virginia. That vessel also carried more distressing news.
Weston informed the governor that he was no longer a part of the company sponsoring the Plymouth settlement. The settlers he sent just now, and requested the Plymouth settlement to house and feed, were for his own enterprise.
The "sixty lusty men" would not work for the benefit of Plymouth; in fact he had obtained a patent and as soon as they were ready they would settle an area in Massachusetts Bay.
Other letters also were brought. The other venturers in London explained that they had bought out Weston, and everyone was better off without him.
Weston, who saw the letter before it was sent, advised the settlers to break off from the remaining merchants, and as a sign of good faith delivered a quantity of bread and cod to them.
Although, as Bradford noted in the margin, he "left not his own men a bite of bread. Finally Robert Cushman sent a letter advising that Weston's men "are no men for us; wherefore I prey you entertain them not"; he also advised the Plymouth Separatists not to trade with them or loan them anything except on strict collateral.
I pray you therefore signify to Squanto that they are a distinct body from us, and we have nothing to do with them, neither must be blamed for their faults, much less can warrant their fidelity.
Weston's men, "stout knaves" in the words of Thomas Morton,  were roustabouts collected for adventure  and they scandalized the mostly strictly religious villagers of Plymouth.
Worse, they stole the colony's corn, wandering into the fields and snatching the green ears for themselves. The harvest again proved disappointing, so that it appeared that "famine must still ensue, the next year also" for lack of seed.
And they could not even trade for staples because their supply of items the Natives sought had been exhausted. But not long after, even there they plagued Plymouth, who heard, from Natives once friendly with them, that Weston's settlers were stealing their corn and committing other abuses.
The ship had a cargo of knives, beads and other items prized by Natives, but seeing the desperation of the colonists the captain drove a hard bargain: He required them to buy a large lot, charged them double their price and valued their beaver pelts at 3s.
The Charity returned from Virginia at the end of September—beginning of October. It proceeded on to England, leaving the Wessagusset settlers well provisioned.
The Swan was left for their use as well. They proposed equal division of the proceeds with payment for their share of the goods traded to await arrival of Weston.
Bradford assumed they had burned through their provisions. Bradford agreed and proposed an expedition southward of the Cape.
Winslow wrote that Tisquantum and Massasoit had "wrought" a peace although he doesn't explain how this came about. With Tisquantum as guide, they might find the passage among the Monomoy Shoals to Nantucket Sound ; [x] Tisquantum had advised them he twice sailed through the shoals, once on an English and once on a French vessel.
When in Plymouth Richard Green, Weston's brother-in-law and temporary governor of the colony, died. After his burial and receiving directions to proceed from the succeeding governor of Wessagusset, Standish was appointed leader but twice the voyage was turned back by violent winds.
On the second attempt, Standish fell ill. On his return Bradford himself took charge of the enterprise. When they reached the shoals, Tisquantum piloted the vessel, but the master of the vessel did not trust the directions and bore up.
Tisquantum directed him through a narrow passage, and they were able to harbor near Mamamoycke now Chatham. That night Bradford went ashore with a few others, Tisquantum acting as translator and facilitator.
Not having seen any of these Englishmen before, the Natives were initially reluctant. But Tisquantum coaxed them and they provided a plentiful meal of venison and other victuals.
They were reluctant to allow the English to see their homes, but when Bradford showed his intention to stay on shore, they invited him to their shelters, having first removed all their belongings.
As long as the English stayed, the Natives would disappear "bag and baggage" whenever their possessions were seen. Eventually Tisquantum persuaded them to trade and as a result, the settlers obtained eight hogsheads of corn and beans.
The villagers also told them that they had seen vessels "of good burthen" pass through the shoals.
And so, with Tisquantum feeling confident, the English were prepared to make another attempt. But suddenly Tisquantum became ill and died.
The sickness seems to have greatly shaken Bradford, for they lingered there for several days before he died. Bradford described his death in some detail:.
In this place Tisquantum fell sick of Indian fever, bleeding much at the nose which the Indians take as a symptom of death and within a few days died there; desiring the Governor to pray for him, that he might go to the Englishmen's God in Heaven; and bequeathed sundry of his things to English friends, as remembrances of his love; of whom they had a great loss.
Without Tisquantum to pilot them, the English settlers decided against trying the shoals again and returned to Cape Cod Bay. The English Separatists were comforted by the fact that Tisquantum had become a Christian convert.
William Wood writing a little more than a decade later explained why some of the Ninnimissinuok began recognizing the power of "the Englishmens God, as they call him": "because they could never yet have power by their conjurations to damnifie the English either in body or goods" and since the introduction of the new spirit "the times and seasons being much altered in seven or eight years, freer from lightning and thunder, and long droughts, suddaine and tempestuous dashes of rain, and lamentable cold Winters".
Philbrick speculates that Tisquantum may have been poisoned by Massasoit. His bases for the claim are i that other Native Americans had engaged in assassinations during the 17th century; and ii that Massasoit's own son, the so-called King Philip , may have assassinated John Sassamon , an event that led to the bloody King Philip's War a half-century later.
He suggests that the "peace" Winslow says was lately made between the two could have been a "rouse" but does not explain how Massasoit could have accomplished the feat on the very remote southeast end of Cape Cod, more than 85 miles distant from Pokanoket.
Tisquantum is reputed to be buried in the village of Chatham Port. Because almost all the historical records of Tisquantum were written by English Separatists and because most of that writing had the purpose to attract new settlers, give account of their actions to their financial sponsors or to justify themselves to co-religionists, they tended to relegate Tisquantum or any other Native American to the role of assistant to them in their activities.
No real attempt was made to understand Tisquantum or Native culture, particularly religion. The closest that Bradford got in analyzing him was to say "that Tisquantum sought his own ends and played his own game, … to enrich himself".
But in the end, he gave "sundry of his things to sundry of his English friends". Historians' assessment of Tisquantum depended on the extent they were willing to consider the possible biases or motivations of the writers.
Earlier writers tended to take the colonists' statements at face value. Current writers, especially those familiar with ethnohistorical research, have given a more nuanced view of Tisquantum, among other Native Americans.
As a result, the assessment of historians has run the gamut. Adams characterized him as "a notable illustration of the innate childishness of the Indian character".
As for monuments and memorials, although many as Willison put it "clutter up the Pilgrim towns there is none to Squanto…"  The first settlers may have named after him the peninsula called Squantum once in Dorchester,  now in Quincy , during their first expedition there with Tisquantum as their guide.
Tisquantum rarely makes appearances in literature or popular entertainment. Of all the 19th century New England poets and story tellers who drew on pre-Revolution America for their characters, only one seems to have mentioned Tisquantum.
And while Henry Wadsworth Longfellow himself had five ancestors aboard the Mayflower, " The Courtship of Miles Standish " has the captain blustering at the beginning, daring the savages to attack, yet the enemies he addresses could not have been known to him by name until their peaceful intentions had already been made known:.
Let them come if they like, be it sagamore, sachem, or pow-wow, Aspinet, Samoset, Corbitant, Squanto, or Tokamahamon!
Tisquantum is almost equally scarce in popular entertainment, but when he appeared it was typically in implausible fantasies. Very early in what Willison calls the "Pilgrim Apotheosis", marked by the sermon of Reverend Chandler Robbins, in which he described the Mayflower settlers as "pilgrims",  a "Melo Drama" was advertised in Boston titled "The Pilgrims, Or the Landing of the Forefathrs at Plymouth Rock" filled with Indian threats and comic scenes.
Where Tisquantum is most encountered is in literature designed to instruct children and young people, provide inspiration, or guide them to a patriotic or religious truth.
This came about for two reasons. First, Lincoln's establishment of Thanksgiving as a national holiday enshrined the New England Anglo-Saxon festival, vaguely associated with an American strain of Protestantism, as something of a national origins myth, in the middle of a divisive Civil War when even some Unionists were becoming concerned with rising non-Anglo-Saxon immigration.
She points to the Indian Head coin first struck in "to commemorate their passing. He is, or at least a fictionalized portrayal of him, thus a favorite of a certain politically conservative American Protestant groups.
The story of the selfless "noble savage" who patiently guided and occasionally saved the "Pilgrims" to whom he was subservient and who attributed their good fortune solely to their faith, all celebrated during a bounteous festival was thought to be an enchanting figure for children and young adults.
Beginning early in the 20th century Tisquantum entered high school textbooks, [aa] children's read-aloud and self-reading books, [ab] more recently learn-to-read and coloring books [ac] and children's religious inspiration books.
Their portraits of Tisquantum's life and times spans the gamut of accuracy. Those intending to teach a moral lesson or tell history from a religious viewpoint tend to be the least accurate even when they claim to be telling a true historical story.
An exception to all of that is the publication of a "young adult" version of Philbrick's best-selling adult history. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

It was only when they entered Cape Cod Bay, according to Bradford, that they began to consider what desperation they would be in if the original colonists had perished.
The Fortune also brought a letter from London financier Thomas Weston complaining about holding the Mayflower for so long the previous year and failing to lade her for her return.
Bradford's response was surprisingly mild. Hobomok asked what they were, and Tisquantum replied that it was the plague that he had told him and others about.
Oddly in a tale of the wickedness of Tisquantum for claiming the English had control over the plague is this addendum: Hobomok asked one of the settlers whether it was true, and the settler replied, "no; But the God of the English had it in store, and could send it at is pleasure to the destruction of his and our enemies.
That neither he nor any of his should injure or doe hurt to any of our people. And if any of his did hurt to any of ours, he should send the offender, that we might punish him.
Neither Bradford in his answer to the messenger, nor Bradford or Winslow in their history of this event denies that the treaty entitled Massasoit to the return of Tisquantum.
Bradford's order is: 1 Provisions spent, no source of food found; 2 end of May brings shallop from Sparrow with Weston letters and seven new settlers; 3 Charity and Swan arrive depositing "sixty lusty men"'; 4 amidst "their straights" letter from Huddleston brought by "this boat" from the east; 5 Winslow and men return with them; 6 "this summer" they build fort.
Philbrick has Huddleston's letter arrive after the Charity and Swan , and only mentions Winslow's voyage to the fishing grounds, which, if it took place after the arrival of those two vessels, would have taken place after the end of the fishing season.
Bradford noted that in there "were many more ships come afishing". Nickerson claims that the skeleton which washed out "of a hill between Head of the Bay and Cove's Pond" around was probably Squanto's.
