Squanto Flipped Sides
All of Massasoit’s distrust of Squanto proved to be correct. As soon as he had the chance, Squanto tried to ally himself with the Pilgrims and turn the Pilgrims against Massasoit and the Wampanoag people. Massasoit, however, soon learned of the scheme and demanded that the Pilgrims hand over Squanto.
He was to be executed for treason. By this time, Squanto had demonstrated to the Pilgrims that he could help teach them valuable skills that could help them survive on the new land. The Pilgrims didn’t want to give up their resource so they refused to relinquish Squanto to Massasoit.
