This Prologue opens at Caskoak, or Casco Bay, in Wabanaki territory, as English and French explorers, merchants, and settlers are entering Native space. This brief opening offers a unique view of a seemingly familiar scene, by showing a snapshot of the encounter between the English explorer Christopher Levett and the Wabanaki “Queen” of Casco Bay. This brief chapter introduces Native American women leaders and their relationships to diplomacy, agriculture, and early deeds.

Keywords:   Queen of Caskoak, Christopher Levett, Casco Bay, Wabanaki, Deeds, Diplomacy, Agriculture, Native American women
