Maysville, North Carolina

Welcome to our visitor from

Maysville, North Carolina

To one of our blog posting pages

Sachem – What is a Shechaim

At the top of each posting


pages and this is one of them.

Shechaim/Matriarch/Clan mother, Nettie Smith & her

ancestors on the Pequot nation side.

Got her name because she loved to

fish using a net.

I can remember Uncle Russ, her son, who

enjoyed many days & nights

warm or cold swimming in my

pool while we talked about the

old ways & old days


his visit back

to the Penobscot Reservation

Shechaim/Matriarch/Clan Mother Bright Star, Alice Storey. “

Our Matriarch ancestor, Alice Storey

known as Bright Star because as a child

she loved going outside to look at the stars.



Yours state is on the East coast of Native American Country.


The leaders of your Native American Tribes should have been ‘Shechaim’s’?
