Squanto’s Story

Katy Cawkwell

The story of Tisquantum, generally known as Squanto, is one of the most fascinating elements of the Mayflower narrative.

Taken as a slave by an earlier European expedition to America, Squanto managed to return to his homeland and played a pivotal role in helping the Mayflower’s passengers communicate with the Wampanoag Native American community.

Storyteller Katy Cawkwell has worked with local academics to develop her performance of Squanto’s story.

Enjoy this video of the performance made especially for Mayflower 400 as part of this year’s History Festival.
