    Chief Masconomet finally rests in peace in homelands


    Gordon Harris, the chairman of the Ipswich Historical Commission, shares the story of Chief Masconomet Quinakonant, a leader of the Agawam Tribe:
        Masconomet Quinakonant was the sagamore (chief) of the Agawam tribe of the Algonquian Native Americans when the first Puritan colonists arrived in Ipswich in 1633 and he had survived the pandemic caused by European contact, which killed 90 percent of the local native population in the early 1600s.
