Chief? I think not...

Quadequina was not a chief as there were no chiefs among the Wampanoags. His brother Ousamequin (known in the history books by his title Massasoit) was known to consult with his brother Quadequina and it has even been suggested that at times they co-ruled, but Ousamequin was from Wolf clan (a leader clan) and Quadequina was not.

It is easy to ascribe traits to someone based on time periods, but they are not always culturally accurate - such as middle and last names.

I do not wish to have my name listed as the source of misinformation so please do not edit these errors back into my listing.

Thank you
