The first reported Thanksgiving was 400 years ago in 1621. For decades a one sided naritive of this holiday was represented. The reality was a lot more nuanced and unpleasant. The Wampanoags, whose culture existed for thousands of years before any pilgrims arrived, have a different relationship to this holiday.
