    Weetamoo – Wampanoag

    Weetamoo (c. 1635–1676), also referred to as Weetamoe, was a Pocasset Wampanoag Native American noblewoman who was born in the Mattapoiset village of the Pokanoket and died at Taunton River. Her father was Corbitant, sachem of the Pocasset tribe in present day North Tiverton, Rhode Island, c. 1618–1630. She had five husbands, the most famous of whom was Wamsutta, the eldest son of Massasoit, grand sachem of the Wampanoag and participant in the first Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims. Her name means “Sweet Heart”.
