Page 16: Pilgrims Daily Life

Leadership and sacrifice

~Squanto possessed many of these positive virtues. ~He was captured by many early settlers yet that did not stop him from helping the pilgrims when they came to America ~He was important for the pilgrims survival because he spoke English so he was a translator for the pilgrims to the native American tribes. He also helped the pilgrims to learn to hunt and fish on his land. ~He died in 1622

Two Cultures meet Samoset, a Native from the Monhegan tribe in Maine who spoke

English, walked into Plymouth on March 16, 1621. Samoset returned to Plymouth on March 22. He brought

Massasoit with him. Massasoit was a Pokanoket Wampanoag sachem (leader).

Governor Bradford and Massasoit signed a peace treaty. Squanto, the only surviving member of the Patuxet tribe, also

came to visit. Squanto and Hobbamock lived at Plymouth Plantation. They

helped the colonists to gather food, plant corn, find their way in the wilderness and to understand the native people.

The “Fortune” lands In November, 1621 the ship the Fortune landed

at Plymouth with 35 new colonists. The original Pilgrims had barely enough food for themselves, and little to spare for more people.

This is when conflict around camp begin to arise as the new settlers were not compromising with the pilgrims.

Example of Christmas day

Page 19: Pilgrims Daily Life

Survival As the winter began it was hard for the pilgrims to live

day to day. After conflict began with the new settlers and the native Americans the colony began to fall apart. The main cause of death when the winter came was:

Starvation: Crops could not grow in the cold, and the pilgrims were still learning how to hunt and where to hunt so many ended up starving to death

Freezing to death Reflection question: think of everything you need to

survive day to day, especially in Wisconsin? How does this compare to what the pilgrims had in the winter.

Page 20: Pilgrims Daily Life

Disease When the pilgrims came to the new world they

also brought disease. They ended up spreading the plague to many native Americans. The main tribe they hit when they came to America was the Patuxet tribe. This was the tribe that Squanto lead, he was one of the few that survived.

Page 21: Pilgrims Daily Life

Trading In order for the pilgrims to make it through both

winter and the spread of disease they relied on the neighboring native American groups to be able to help them trade to necessities they needed for survival.

Lesson #3: Writings

Page 23: Pilgrims Daily Life

The Mayflower Compact

The mayflower compact was written by the Separatists as a governing document for the Plymouth colony

It Signed on November 11th by 41 Colonists

This document was made to form a compromise among the settlers and the new to come

What are other governing documents?

Page 24: Pilgrims Daily Life

Peace treaty The agreement, in which both parties promised to not "doe

hurt" to one another, was the first treaty between a Native American Tribe and a colonist group. According to the treaty, if a Wampanoag broke the peace, he would be sent to Plymouth for punishment and likewise the pilgrims would be sent to the Wampanoag’s.

The treaty lasted 50 years Do you compromise with your family and friends? What are

things you can do to compromise besides signing a treaty? http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/the-pilgrim-wam

Story telling Stories were told in the new land to be able to

pass down morals and lesson learned living in the new land.

The only way that the people who died would live on is through the families telling their story and passing it on, that way they could live forever

What are some of your families stories?

Page 26: Pilgrims Daily Life

Writing letters Just like story telling the pilgrims sent letters

home to the family members they left behind in their homeland.

What would you tell your family back at home if you traveled to America?
