Squanto was kidnapped( for the first time) by George Weymouth in 1605. Weymouth took him to England and he was taught English.
In 1615, Squanto was sent back to America by John Smith to act as an interpreter for the incoming settlers.
Squanto was kidnapped a second time by Thomas Hunt who took him and other Native Americans to Spain with the intention of selling them into slavery. He was able to escape and it is thought that it is during this time that he became fluent in English.
In early 1621, Squanto was brought to Plymouth Colony by Samoset, who was supposed to act as a greeter for the Pilgrims but because of his little understanding of English was replaced by Squanto. This meeting was the beginning of Squanto's service for the Pilgrims.
In the fall of 1921, the Pilgrims and the Wompanoag celebrated their peace and the successful harvest of that year. This celebration was the first Thanksgiving.
Squanto unfortunately died of a fever he caught while he was guiding William Bradford on an expedition around Cape Cod.
