American Experience, originally titled ‘The American Experience’, is an American television programme and a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) documentary series created by Peter McGhee.
In 1621, Wampanoag leader Massasoit negotiates to provide help to the ailing Pilgrims from the Mayflower, who are on the brink of disaster, because he thinks this alliance will ensure protection for his tribe from the threatening Narragansett tribe. For the next fifty years, events prove that Massasoit was wrong, as continuing European immigration, deaths from widespread new diseases, and overuse of natural resources push the interaction between the Wampanoag and the Pilgrims to war led by Metacomet, Massasoit’s son.
