The Sketchbook of Geoffrey Crayon by Washington Irving: Philip of Pokanoket
When the Pilgrims, as the Plymouth settlers are called by their descendants, first took refuge on the shores of the New World from the religious persecutions of the Old, their situation was to the last degree gloomy and disheartening.
Proud of heart and with an untamable love of natural liberty, he preferred to enjoy it among the beasts of the forests or in the dismal and famished recesses of swamps and morasses, rather than bow his haughty spirit to submission and live dependent and despised in the ease and luxury of the settlements.

 The Pawtucket Times - Tribal nation converges on Slater Park
Pokanoket Chief Sachem Linda Elderkin said representatives from dozens of nations are expected, including Abenacki, Black Foot, Cherokee, Iroquois, Micmac, Mohegan, Narragansett, Oneida, Passamaquoddy, Pequot, Nez Perce and Sioux, as well as some first-time visiting South American tribes and a contingent of Aztec dancers.
The Pokanokets made up part of what was called the Wampanoag nation, whose encampments ranged throughout southern Rhode Island, southern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, according to a 2003 Times story based on a book of tribal history.
The native language of the Pokanokets, like other tribes in the federation, was Algonquin; at one time the federation numbered 8,000 people and the Pokanokets, in the decades after the Pilgrims landed in 1620, had 156 encampments.

Within months of the landing at Plymouth in 1620, about half of the 102 settlers aboard the Mayflower were dead and the rest were near starvation.
Because the Pilgrims landed in November, they were unable to plant crops and had to steal from the Pokanoket Indians in order to survive.
Slowly, the Pokanokets and other tribes like the Narragansetts and the Nipmuks were pushed further and further west, writes Philbrick, or forced into small tracts of land.

Because of his high status, Hobbamock was asked to come to Plymouth as a liaison to the English colonists.
He also made the 40-mile journey from Pokanoket (now Bristol, Rhode Island) to Plymouth because the Native People of Patuxet (Plymouth) had died in plagues (probably of European origin) four years prior to the arrival of the Mayflower.

 The Essence of War: Metacomet and the New England Indian Revolt of 1675-6
  Though Philip was not a “king” when he assumed leadership of the Pokanoket Wampanoags and never would become one by the English definition of the word, he attempted, successfully for a time, to increase his own political power and establish himself as a head of state for the Indians of Southern New England.
What the Tauton agreement did do, however, was cement the perception in the eyes of the English that Philip represented all of the Wampanoags, after all he had just signed a treaty speaking for all Wampanoags that they were subject to the royal and colonial governments’ laws.
Reluctant or not, the response of Philip’s men to executions carried out by Plymouth represented the point of alea iacta est, and Philip had no choice but to proceed with fighting the war as much as he would be able, given its premature beginning.
