Orehaoue . A Cayuga chief who opposed the Jesuits and caused Father Carheil’s withdrawal. He aided the English of Albany in preventing Penn’s purchase of Susquehanna lands, and visited De la Barre in 1684. In 1687 Denonville seized him and sent him to France . He was then called Goiguenha -Oreouahe, and often Taweeratt; also Wahawa by the Onondaga. In 1688 the Cayuga wished for “Taweeratt, the chief warrior of Cayouge, who is lamented amongst them every day.” Returning in 1689, Orehaoue became attached to Count Frontenac and fought for the French. He died in 1698 and was buried with high honours as “a worthy Frenchman and good Christian.”
