    Canonchet (died 1676) was a Narragansett Sachem & leader of Native American troops during the Great Swamp Fight & King Philip’s War. He was a son of Miantonomo. In 1676, having been surprised and captured, his life was offered him on condition of making peace with the English, but he spurned the proposition. When informed that he was to be put to death, he said: “I like it well. I shall die before my heart is soft, and before I have spoken a word unworthy of Canonchet.” #nativechiefs
