The Indian leader: welcome to our land! Who are you? Where are you from?
1 Pilgrim: we are Pilgrims. We are from England. We have come for new lives. And who are you?
The Indian leader : we are Indians. We have been living here for a long time. You may stay here and live on our land.
All Pilgrims: thank you very much
Story-teller: the first winter was a terrible time. The pilgrims were hungry, sick and cold. Many people died. Then the Native Americans, the Indians, helped the pilgrims.
1 Pilgrim: we have nothing to eat. Many people have died and many are sick. What shall we do? (Появляются индейцы с корзинами еды)
1 Indian: Hello! We have brought food to you: bread, vegetables, fruit, corn and other things
3 Pilgrim oh! Thank you very much! You have saved our lives! We’ll never forget you!
Story-teller: spring came. Indians taught the Pilgrims to plant corn, to build houses, to hunt, to fish. In other words - how to survive in America. (Индейцы показывают пилигримам как выращивать кукурузу строить дома ловить рыбу охотиться)

The Indian leader: ставьте на столы обильное угощенье и собирайтесь на праздник. Поднимем бокалы за стойких пилигримов, чье мужество никогда не иссякнет.
