Are your coming tonight to our classic thanksgiving dinner?<br />Sister Mom: Yes, I’m ready and my husband too. Ok. What things do you need?<br />Mom:Please bring the corn and the pumpkins; and the wine of curse.<br />Sister mom: ok. See you then.<br />At night: <br />Dad: Welcome to our traditional thanksgiving dinner; please boy and girl brint the turkeys…<br />Mom and dad No. 2(Cristina and Gustavo) say: Thank you, here they are the ingredients for our dinner!<br />Turkey 1: The Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock on December 11, 1620. Their first winter was very hard. But the next fall they had a good harvest from the seed they had planted. They decided to celebrate with a feast, including the Indians who had helped them survive their first year. <br />Turkey2: The men went hunting to get meat for thefeast. It is not certain that wild turkey was a part of their feast since they used the term“turkey” for any kind of wild birds.<br />Pumpkin: Another food that we almost always have at Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie. The supply of flour had been used, so there was no bread or pastries of any kind. Pumpkin was plentiful because it grew here wild and they ate it boiled.<br />Corn: the Corn was unknown to the pilgrims before they met the Indians. Indians gave them seeds and taught them how to grow it. Today we grow more acres of corn than any<br />other grain. <br />Boy Pedro: I’ll get the turkey; and my sister the other turkey…<br />Mariana: I’m busy I’m writing about the thanksgiving day; <br />The other boy says: Please tell us the story; ok. Pay attention! Once upon a time… <br />(Todos se sientan alrededor de la mesa viendo hacia el público y el escenario).<br /> <br /> <br /> SCENE I<br />HORA: Otoño, 1615.Escenario: subasta de esclavos en la plaza del pueblo español.EN ASCENSO: CAZA DEL CAPITÁN y SLAVE TRA|Q1WDER, introduzca el derecho del Estado, empujando INDIA Bravos y Squanto, que están atados con cuerdas.

Twenty reales (re-AL-es)? Ten reales? Who will make<br /> the first bid? (Pauses, then gestures to CAPTAIN HUNT.) This is the <br /> sea captain who brought them from the New World.<br />CAPTAIN HUNT : Indians have strong backs. They work hard in the <br /> fields. One of them, this Squanto (Points), can even speak English. <br /> These slaves are worth a great deal of money.<br />FRIAR (enojado): Why do you bring such evil on these <br /> poor heathen savages? Don't you care for their immortal souls? Here <br /> (Excavaciones para la bolsa de dinero), I will purchase them. (Cuenta con las monedas y da a SLAVE TRADER.) here are eight reales for each Indian.

Four years had<br /> passed since he had been kidnapped. After reaching America, Squanto is<br /> eager to return to his village, his family, and his friends. The<br /> gracious captain anchors his ship offshore Squanto's village and rows<br /> in the longboat with the Indian, landing on the beach.<br />CAPT.

(Samoset asiente. Squanto, casi histérico, se arrodilla.) Lord <br /> Jesus, what am I to do now? (Mirada hacia el cielo.) I have no <br /> tribe. I have no people. Why should I go on living?

Forty-four new <br /> graves have been dug in the cold New England ground. Despite their <br /> hardships the Pilgrims have begun to construct buildings and establish<br /> a colony. The new town of Plymouth is built on the very site of <br /> Squanto's deserted village of Patuxet (paw-TUX-et).<br />STANDISH: Mr. Bradford, how can we ever survive?

Squanto comienza a cavar en el suelo con una azada, mostrando Peregrino a los niños a plantar maíz.<br />NARRATOR: Squanto proved to be a tremendous aid to the struggling <br /> Plymouth colony. His knowledge of hunting and fishing was invaluable. <br /> His skill at planting maize, or Indian corn, enabled the Pilgrims to grow <br /> enough food to last them through the next terrible winter.<br />HUMILITY: Mr. Squanto, why did we go fishing before we came to plant corn? <br /> What are these fish for? (gestos hacia los peces.)<br />SQUANTO (Apoyado en la pala): The corn is hungry. This ground has <br /> been used by my tribe for many years. The land is tired.

What do we do next? <br />SQUANTO: Here, take these kernels of corn and out them in the hole.<br /> (SQUANTO le ayuda a mary a hacer el agujero.) Now, Mary, <br /> put these fish with the seeds.

(RESOLVED empieza a llenar hoyos con la azada.)<br />SQUANTO: Maybe when you're older. Sometimes it's dangerous. Last week<br /> some of the men ran into a war party of Indian braves. They were ready<br /> to attack us if I hadn't called out in their language that we came in<br /> peace. (SQUANTO y CHILDREN escarvan y plantas las semillas.)<br />HUMILITY: Mr. Squanto, are you ever lonely?<br />SQUANTO: Yes, many times.

God kept me safe and caused me to learn English so I<br /> help you. Today, you are my family. Now I'm not so lonely.<br />RESOLVED: My mom says that if it weren't for you, none of us would <br /> survive this next winter.<br />SQUANTO (meditabundo): 'God really did have a plan for my life, didn't <br /> He?

He learned English under explorer and financier Sir Ferdinando Gorges (1605-1608) and seems to have been converted to Christianity under Spanish friars (1615). When he returned to his home in 1619 his village was completely deserted, victim to smallpox. The Pilgrims landed in November 1620. Squanto stayed with them for a year and a half, performing invaluable service to Plymouth Colony from March 1621 until his death of an Indian fever in November 1622. In his journal, William Bradford calls Squanto "
a spetiall instrument sent of God for their good beyond their expectation."
Squanto's last plea was for Governor Bradford "
to pray for him, that he might go to the Englishmen's God in heaven."
