About Quadiquina Wampanoag

Introduced the Pilgrims to popcorn when he brought it to the first Thanksgiving dinner.

Wampanoag Indian.

Quadiquina ( ) was the older of Massaaoit's two brothers. He is first mentioned when he accompanied Massasoit to Plymouth in March,1621, and was described as "a very proper, tall young man of a very modest and seemly countenance." He is generally credited with being one of the two" King's of Pokanoket" whom Captain Dermer interviewed at Nemasket in June, 1619, this conclusion undoubtedly being drawn from the fact he accompanied Massasoit to his early meeting's with the English.

He was thought to be next in age to Massasoit, as Akkompion the other brother does not appear until a much later date.The part played by him in the affairs of the tribe and federation in their dealings with their neighbors appears to have been an inconsequential one. Quadiquina was therefore later considered by the English as simply a younger brother of the "King," and, in consequence of his royal blood, a close counsellor and frequent companion. Quadiquina died within a few years of the landing of the Pilgrims.



Quadequina is the Father of Oguina - later renamed Margaret Wheldon - and at least one other girl (perhaps more), who married the brother of Margaret's husband, who was also a Wheldon.
