Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, at some point.
This next quote comes from the comments on a websnark snark of a Jack Chick tract.
Tisquantum (Squanto) certainly did speak English. He learned in after being kidnapped in 1605 by George Weymouth and taken to England.

He got back to America in 1613; was kidnapped again, sold as a slave to Spaniards; managed to get to England in 1618; and managed to get back to America again in 1619.

Back home, he discovered his tribe had been decimated by smallpox when he was away. So he wandered a bit, found the Pilgrims, and hooked up with them as an interpreter.
