Weeâchumun's Thanksgiving Story

Wispy, dreamlike illustrations complement this tale of the first Thanksgiving from a Wampanoag perspective. Weeâchumun, the wise corn, and her sisters, Beans and Squash, are considered the three sisters of the harvest. When Weeâchumun sees the settlers arrive, she tasks Fox to watch them through the winter. When spring returns, Fox reports the newcomers are hungry and struggling, and the sisters send the First Peoples to their aid, setting history into motion.
