The Strawberry Thanksgiving (Princess Redwing)
    by John Cech

This month brings one of the five thanksgivings celebrated by the native Americans who helped the Pilgrims. The late Princess Redwing, whom you will hear on this 1981 interview, was a well known storyteller throughout New England. She was also the Squaw Sachem of the Wampanoag Nation -- a position of the highest honor -- and a direct descendent of King Phillip, one of the Wampanoag's great leaders. Here's Princess Redwing with the story of The Strawberry Thanksgiving.
