About This Publication

Stories of the first Thanksgiving are many and varied. But for an accurate account, we should go to the writings of one who actually attended. In 1622, their "Thanksgiving" was actually a small "Harvest Festival," where Pilgrims of Plymouth in New England took the opportunity to thank God for His blessing, along with sharing it with their new friends, the Native Americans (who they mistakenly called "Indians"). It is beautiful to hear of the harmony that existed in the very beginning between this tiny band of English settlers and the Native Americans they encountered. It is not the story of bloody battles as depicted in Hollywood movies, but of simple humans joined in the battle of sheer existence... There are several touching stories for those early days that show the hearts of men and women who went through extreme suffering, experienced kindness, and formed a bond of lifetime friendships.

The Twelve Tribes is a confederation of twelve self-governing tribes, composed of self-governing communities. We are disciples of the Son of God whose name in Hebrew is Yahshua. We follow the pattern of the early church in Acts 2:44 and 4:32, truly believing everything that is written in the Old and New Covenants of the Bible, and sharing all things in common.
