Pequot 


Pequot (Pequoter)
Pequot, algonkinindiansk grupp med all sannolik en släkt sprungen ur ett gemensamt ursprung med indianerna i grannskapet som Mohegans, Niantic, etc, bosatta bland Connecticuts floddalar. Under Sassacus kom de att dominera området och deras bestämda hållning gentemot de engelska kolonisterna orsakade ett tidigt mycket blodigt indiankrig. Detta tidiga motstånd lönade sig föga och Pequoterna krossades och försvann för en tid bland andra indiangrupper i trakten. På senare år har stammen reorganiserats.
