Which Native American tribe befriended the pilgrims?

Answer

In 1620, the Wampanoag people who lived in Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and inland befriended the newly arrived Pilgrims. The local chief, Massasoit, agreed to exist peacefully with the Pilgrims provided both parties helped each other.

Following the first harsh winter, the Pilgrims and Native Americans worked together to hunt and fish and plant crops of corn, peas and barley. However, as more colonists arrived, the Wampanoag were driven from their land. When war resulted, the British won and sold many Wampanoag into slavery. Their language and tribal names were not allowed to be spoken. In 1928, the Wampanoag people reclaimed their tribal identity.
