About Opechan Stream Cornstalk, Principle Chief of the Shawnee

Pardo's men sacked Witchita, KS in 1560 and brought Sara/Eastern Siouans over to the Susquahanna Valley the Menokin/Monocan = means "hemp farmer" in IOWA/Chiwere language; by 1570 listed as "Shawnee by Capt John Smith when he charted their part on his 1656 map; they were the " Old Cheraw" /Charra / Xualla - per the Chesapeake Trail archeology study.

Mother of sister of Cockacoeske has to be the same as the right of succession went to the niece of Cockacoeske ythe matrilineal descent that started with the Patawomeck wife of the Paramount Chief of the Powhatan Federation.

"If you study the Pamunkey matrilineal succession that determined the rulers of the Federation, it would be highly unlikely that Totopotomoi could have been a son of Nectowance. Since Cockacoeske was later the ruler of the Federation in her own right, not because she was Totopotomoi's widow, and is known to have been Opechancanough's granddaughter, it follows that "she" was Necotowance's daughter, by his traditional wife of the matrilineal succession." ~ ~ ~ ~Bill Devo, PATAWOMECK TRIBAL HISTORIAN, emailed statement, July 27, 2017.
