Select all that apply. At one point in his interview, Fast Turtle says, “Life was good before the English came.” This statement most likely refers to the idea that Wampanoag:
[ ] were living alone before the English came [ ] had to give up their lands and religion [ ] were afraid of the Pilgrims [ ] didn’t have as much food [ ] came down with diseases from the Pilgrims [ ] were forced to learn English
The Pilgrims were grateful to the Native Americans for showing them survival skills, but they also had several other feelings toward them. What were these feelings? Use at least two details from the interviews to support your answer.
