Upon arriving in the new world, the Pilgrims were very strict believers in Jesus, with faith in God being the ultimate factor for their overall progression in creating a new society alongside the natives.
While setting up a new colony, some of the Pilgrims followed the Natives and stole corn, beans, and other crops. These actions were ironic because some Pilgrims proclaimed, "We are victims, in which God has sent us here to steal." This was often a result of twisting God's words.
A local Native who went by the name of Squanto helped the Pilgrims to plant crops and harvest food. Squanto spoke English well, and the colonists were able to thrive and take care of each other, with much respect towards his efforts. In 1621, the Pilgrims and Natives celebrated the very first Thanksgiving together, which in fact lased about a week!
