Squanto was born circa 1580, near Plymouth, Massachusetts. In 1614, he was kidnapped by English explorer Thomas Hunt, who brought him to Spain. Luckily, Squanto was rescued by Spanish friars and found his way to England. After his new boss sent him on an expedition, he returned to the Patuxet region, where he became an interpreter and guide to pilgrims. He died circa November 1622 in Chatham, Massachusetts.
