Massasoit: Profile in Peace
Fri. 11/26: This week on Peace Talks, we talk with scholars who fill in the details of this Native American leader's commitment to peace.
Massasoit was the leader of the Wampanoag Confederacy when English settlers landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. He and his people kept the Pilgrims from starving in the early years of their settlement, attended the first Thanksgiving and forged a peace treaty with the English that lasted 40 years until his death.
