Overview

Excerpt from Book of Indian Braves

Powhatan, the great Werowance, or Ruler, over thirty tribes, was troubled because of disquieting reports which had been brought to him.

Not only had a settlement of pale-faced strangers been discovered scarcely two days' journey down the Chicka-hominy River from Weremocomoco, but half a dozen of the "pale-faces" had been seen navigating the river in a strange-looking craft, clearing away fallen trees as they went, to free the river for their progress.

Lurking in underbrush and woodland by the water's edge, more than two hundred savages watched the boat with straining eyes when it made a landing, and immediately surrounded the band of Englishmen, as the strangers proved to be.

They wore ragged clothing, such as the Indians had never before seen, and their faces and bodies were so thin and white that the stalwart red men looked at them in scorn; and when the Englishmen held out their swords and guns with gestures showing a desire to exchange them for food, the Indians grunted in derision of such weaklings and offered only a piece of bread or a handful of corn, as if to say, "This is plenty for such as you!"
