Maquinna and Callicum

Maquinna and Callicum at Nootka Sound, Meares Voyages, 1788

The wiki page on Maquinna is good and provides an insight into one of the most well documented first contacts between Europeans and a Native American group.  Links to many of the key documents are give on this Maquinna wiki page.  Maquinna was the chief of the Nuu-chah-nulth people of Nootka Sound in the 1780s and 1790s.  The Nuu-chah-nulth language is classified in the Wakashan language group.
