Definition

Hobbamock (d. c. 1643, also given as Hobbamok and Hobomok) was a Native American of the Pokanoket tribe who served the sachem Massasoit (l. c. 1581-1661) of the Wampanoag Confederacy as a pniese (counselor and elite warrior). He is best known for exposing Squanto's plot to undermine Massasoit's authority and set the pilgrims at Wampanoags against each other.
