Description

The leader of the Mowachat people was noted in journals as Maquinna or Maquilla when European explorers visited Yuquot, the harbour they called Nootka, on the Pacific northwest coast of North America. Maquinna's name is in use today among his descendants. It is interesting to study this name's origin by reading not only his descendants' autobiography and websites, but records in English and Spanish written by explorers and colonists. An Internet search for mentions of Maquinna in Spanish turns up idioms appropriate to compare with explorers’ records. Based on Spanish idiom, the origin of this name should be reconsidered.
