Photos of Uncas

Welcome Lviv Lvivska Oblast Ukraine
Sorry but there are no know pictures (photos) of Unkas (Uncas).

In fact no real known photos of our people, the Eastern Woodland Native Americans around the New England Area at the time of the life of, Shechaim Ohjieshan Unkas.

The first leader of my people.
The Moiigans (Maïngan – Yáw – Wolf-People).
Sachem Uncas (Shechaim Ohjieshan Unkas), 1588 -1683.
The closest to this I am willing to show you is a group of our people,
(over looked by this government),
and very real to any Eastern Woodland Native Americans
around the New England Area.
Would by a tribe of my relations.
Many artists draw what they believe to be,
what he looked like by comparing him to other tribes.
Remember a few points;

there were still plenty of trees and many bushes and briers around the area,
not as much as at first contact but a lot.
Therefore, the hair could not look like the plains and western Indians.
Running after food (game) or from enemies, or after an enemy,
should not be slowed because of tangled hair.
Our first Shechaim (Sachem), had many enemies, people wanting to be the leader of his people.
New England has four seasons and our people dressed accordingly.
Furs and skins in the winter.
Skins in the spring and fall.
Very little in the summers.

Shechaim Ohjieshan Unkas Head Clan mother
was Manoma (Martha) His wife.

Shechaim Ohjieshan Unkas-War Chief Cauchegan.

Yours truly on the way up on our prayer


Native Americans in the area did not wear a 'war bonnett
they wear a Roach Hairpiece made from porcupine.

 In 1626 and still a Pequot  his father Shechaim Owaneco arranged a marriage to the Pequot War-chief, Tatobem (Sassacus)
Hope that this answers your questions.
