The old fable goes: With thanks to the Wampanoags for lessons in growing crops, in autumn of 1621, the Pilgrims celebrated a successful harvest. Some tell a different story of a Wampanoag traditional feast called Nikkomosachmiawene. Regardless of what Thanksgiving once meant, this Thanksgiving poem captures its modern meaning.
