Chief Osceola Townsend


My name is Osceola Townsend, Sachem/Chief of the Matinecock Nation since 1984. I was appointed by the late Chief John Williams, aka Chief Little Moose of the Matinecock Nation of Jamaica Queens, NY.

I have been active in our Nation’s activities since the late 40’s when I was under the intelligent direction of my late father Theodore Thomas Townsend, aka Chief Quiet One.
