The Nobscussett Tribe The First To Feed The Mayflower Pilgrims

The Nobscussett Tribe The First To Feed The Mayflower Pilgrims

Nobscussett Tribe Burial GroundA few years ago we vacationed in Cape Cod in December and as with all of our vacations we traveled around the area and took in the sights in order to appreciate the area more.  On one of these outings we came upon a sign for the "Burial Grounds Of The Nosbscussett Tribe Of Indians" in the town of Dennis.  We stopped and I ventured on the overgrown path off the road to the burial ground.  This sacred ground was overlooking a body of water and appeared to be maintained and had recent visits from people leaving offerings of sea shells and garlands for the Christmas season.

Nosbscussett Tribe Burial GroundThe only sign at the burial ground simply stated, "Burial Ground of the Nosbscussett Tribe of Indians of which tribe Mashantanpaine Was Chief".  It was a peaceful place but yet I could not help but think of the sadness and hardship these people endured.

What inspired me to write this post is that when I Googled the name of this tribe the only link that offered any info was FindAGrave.com.  And I thought it was worth sharing on this Thanksgiving Holiday weekend.

According to this site, "The Nobscussett was the first tribe to meet the Mayflower Pilgrims. The Pilgrims had come ashore looking for food and found bushels of corn that the Nobscussett had left as an offering to their ancestors" probably to dissuade the new comers from staying in the area, since the remarks continued to say that the Tribe was able to get those Pilgrims out of the area.

From this bit of information, the Nosbscussett Tribe was helpful in feeding the Mayflower Pilgrims, but not the tribe that was part of the gathering that inspired this holiday of Thanksgiving.
