Quadequina

 

 


Quadequina was the brother of Massasoit.  On March 22, 1621 he came with his brother to visit the Pilgrims, as he had done earlier in 1619 when Captain Thomas Dermer visited.  He watched Edward Winslow while the peace negotiations between Bradford and Massasoit were taking place.  He received several gifts from the Pilgrims as well, similar to the gifts received by his brother.  After the peace agreement between Massasoit and Bradford was signed, Quadequina payed a visit to the Pilgrim village himself.  He was a little more fearful of the Pilgrims, and especially of their guns.  The Pilgrims described him as follows: "He was a very proper young man, of a very modest and seemly countenance, and he did kindly like of our entertainment, so we conveyed him likewise as we did the king [Massasoit]."
