Goldstein, Dana Enough for All: Native Americans and the First Shared Thanksgiving History,
Multicultural- Native American,
Performing Arts- Theater
This original musical recounts the year leading up to the first recorded Thanksgiving in 1621, a time when Pilgrims and Wampanoag Native Americans worked together. Without help from the Native Americans, the colonists would never have survived. Enough for All is told from the perspective of both colonists and Wampanoag villagers, who eventually put aside their differences and learn to trust each other as human beings. When they sit down together to give thanks, they are beginning the tradition that we celebrate today. Though we know that this hopeful beginning is short-lived, at least for this moment, there is enough for all. Students are encouraged to learn from the past, especially from these moments of peace between cultures. This inspiring production is geared toward grades K-6 and is available in November.
