Wawanolewat: See Chief Greylock
Wawanolewat was the Abenaki name of the Missisquoi chief known as
Chief Greylock in English.
"Wawanolewat" does not actually mean "Greylock" in Abenaki-- that may have been his father's name,
or it may have been a nickname of his. The actual meaning of "Wawanolewat" is "fools the enemy."
