Massasoit (c. 1581 – 1661), was the sachem, or leader, of the Wampanoag, and “Massasoit” of the Wampanoag . According to English sources, Massasoit prevented the failure of Plymouth Colony and the almost certain starvation that the Pilgrims faced during the earliest years of the colony’s establishment. Moreover, Massasoit forged critical political and personal ties with the colonial leaders John Carver, Stephen Hopkins, Edward Winslow, William Bradford, and Miles Standish – ties which grew out of a negotiated peace treaty on March 22, 1621. Massasoit’s alliance ensured that the Wampanoag remained neutral during the Pequot War in 1636.
