Acting in his brother’s stead (Wingina was recovering from battle wounds), Granganimeo at once realized the power that the English wielded when they first arrived in 1584. Mostly through hand gestures, he made the English comfortable, traded with them, and invited them to return the next year.
Unfortunately, he would not survive the ravaging diseases that his new English allies would bring and died in the spring of 1586.
