Is Thanksgiving a lie?

I write about the importance of gratitude this time each year, inspired by the Thanksgiving holiday. As Americans, we are taught from an early age about the friendly Indians who helped the Pilgrims survive the winter, and the grateful Pilgrims who shared their bountiful feast with them. It’s a story that is still taught today. But the truth about the Wampanoag people and the English who colonized their land is complex, dark, and ultimately tragic.
