Susquehannocks, and as brave as the children of Wahunsonacock.
Wahunsonacock, who was chief of all the Powhatans, sits now within his wigwam, sharpening flints for his arrows, making his tomahawk bright and keen, thinking of a day three suns hence, when the tribes will shake off forever the hand upon their shoulder, -- the hand so heavy and white that strives always to bend them to the earth and keep them there. '
Nantauquas, the son of Wahunsonacock, a war chief of the Powhatans.
