There really was an o riginal Thanksgiving, when the Pilgrims and their native benefactors feasted and played games with each other, but the settlers eventually annihilated the tribe that welcomed them.� England's bloody record in New England is probably worse than its record in Virginia. [106] � In 1637, the English slaughtered an entire sleeping village of several hundred people of the Pequot tribe and sold the few survivors into slavery.� One leader of the massacre, John Underhill, later justified the attack by citing King David’s genocidal Old Testament activities.� The co mplete extermination of the village alarmed the Mohegan and Narragansett allies who accompanied the attack, and Underhill wrote that they complained about the English manner of fighting, because, “it is too furious, and slays too many men.” [107] A Narragansett sachem, Miantonomi, whose tribe helped the English exterminate the Pequot, may have seen a hint of the future.� In 1642, he allegedly spoke to the Montauk tribe on Long Island and noted that the English arrival was ominous, and that unless the native tribes learned to put aside their differences and unite against the white man’s invasion, before long there would not be any more natives. [108] � The next year, citing rumors of that speech and other activities, the Massachusetts authorities had Miantonomi executed by the Mohegan, which was a rival tribe and Pequot offshoot.� The Mohegan subsequently made themselves useful to the Europeans as warriors and guides, and their utility kept them alive, although repeated visits of epidemics reduced their numbers.� Even after absorbing the remnants of tribes that they helped extinguish, there were less than 1,000 of them in 1680, and only about 200 in 1790.� Their “loyalty” may have kept them alive, but settlers kept acquiring their lands, and the tribe possessed only 2,300 acres in 1790, when their lands were broken up into individual plots.� The 1910 census recorded only 22 of them.� As with many other tribes that were seemingly extinct, the Mohegan made a comeback, being reorganized as a tribe in the 1970s and claiming about 1,000 members today, and the standard casino accompanied their resurgence.� The Dutch, who colon ized present day New York, were no better than the English, and the Manhattan governor offered the first known scalp bounty in 1641.�� Because Underhill proved himself so effective at dispatching sleeping villages, in 1643 the Dutch hired him.� The first thing that Underhill’s men did was attack a friendly and tribute-paying local tribe, the Wappingers.� When attacked, the tribe fled to the Dutch governor and asked for protection, not knowing that he had hired their assailants.� The governor instead ordered their annihilation, and the subsequent attack killed about 80 men of fighting age, who were then scalped and skinned.� The remaining women and children were slaughtered, and severed heads were kicked around the streets of Manhattan like soccer balls during the subsequent celebration.� Then Underhill and his men tried exterminating the resisting local tribes, but usually only destroyed empty villages.� In 1644 however, Underhill successfully reproduced his night attack strategy, on a sleeping village of about 500 people. [109] � After Underhill’s men finished butchering them, the church leaders of Manhattan declared the second Thanksgiving .� The white invaders then held Thanksgiving celebrations after mass murders of natives.� That was the real Thanksgiving tradition in colonial America, which my history lessons in school failed to teach me, as I made my construction paper Pilgrim outfit in kindergarten.
