The Pilgrims were religious people who landed on these shores to have the freedom to pursue their religious beliefs. They had a hard time surviving the first year, and the local Native Americans (called Indians) helped them with planting crops and building shelter. They decided to celebrate a successful harvest by having what turned out to be the first Thanksgiving and sharing it with their Indian benefactors.
