In 1736 Chief Mahomet Weyonomon traveled from Connecticut to London, to ask King George II to stop stealing land from his people, the Mohegans. Sadly, he died of smallpox before he was able to see King George. Because he was a foreigner and foreigners weren't allowed to be buried in the City of London, he was buried in an unmarked grave.
Today, the tribal chief of the Mohegan tribe honored him with a memorial ceremony in Southwark Cathedral, attended by the current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen and the duke were joined by tribal spiritual leader Bruce "Two Dogs" Bozsum and other Mohegans wearing deerskin leggings and headdresses made with turkey and eagle feathers at the memorial ceremony at Southwark Cathedral on Wednesday.
She was presented with a scroll containing a copy of the original petition and a red stone peace pipe.
Mr Bozsum said: "We are glad that we have given him a proper burial now.
So put that in your pipe and smoke it, King George.
