The Wampanoag Indian tribe lived in the Northeast part of America in various locations. Wampanoag Indians and other Native Americans were the first settlers in America. They aided the Pilgrims with their settlement in what is now Massachusetts. The Wampanoags helped the Pilgrims plant their first crops and taught them how to bring in a harvest. Their homes were called Wetes, which were made of thin layers of bark and wood. The Wampanoag Indians also speared cod and bass and killed deer for food and clothing.
