Narragansett Nation

“I was born a warrior; if warriors speak to me I will answer. Since none are present, I am honor bound to keep silent. I am to be executed. I like it well; for I shall die before my heart is soft, or I have spoken anything unworthy of myself.”

Cannonchet, a Narragansett warrior at his execution
by Captain Benjamin Church, in 1675.
