A Look Into History: Squanto


Squanto was a Native American who was first captured by the English and was almost sold into slavery to Spain. Some local friars freed him and taught him about Christianity. He later returned back to America. 



He taught the famous pilgrims how to survive after the first tough winter. 


He later died of illness, though some think it might of been poisoning. Peace between the two groups lasted for about 50 years though.
